We’re living in an increasingly technology driven, digital world. Your workforce is engaging daily with technology to drive productivity in your business and you’re employing new people who have never known a life without the internet and digital technologies.
While it is easy to assume that basic technology training is not required for our increasingly technically savvy employees, you can’t assume that everyone has the same level of skill and interest.
At the very minimum, your employees should be confident in using various communication tools such as videoconferencing, instant messaging, webmail, search engines and web browsers. At the same time, they must have the ability to understand the rules and regulations regarding appropriate use of these communication tools, along with being aware of the legal and social consequences of online behaviours.
Your employees should understand their digital footprint, not just for their own personal safety and reputation but also for that of your business. It is a skill that requires training and practice.
