Technology is all around us and at its best, it can help us be more efficient, productive, and collaborative. For many, technologies lead to confusion and increased pressure while others quickly adopt them into their practice and revel in the usefulness of the tools.
Either type of employee benefits from quality time to learn and practice increasing their professional knowledge of technology and applying the benefits to their career. As a leader or employer, have you invested the time in your staff to achieve maximum results? Many staff are curious to learn more and do more, that’s why taking time to make sure everyone has had a chance to take part in quality technology professional learning is so important.
