Internet Evolution – Dennis A. Kirk – The Internet Has Spawned a New Workforce

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

The overwhelming majority of those now entering the workforce for the first time grew up sharing their thoughts and actions with their online networks. They’ve worked together on homework virtually. They’ve been supervised by parents via email and mobile phone. Presumably their experience has taught them about how and when to trust others’ advice and intentions. It has made sharing knowledge and working with others to create new knowledge second nature.

Applied to work, these attributes all can provide tremendous value to employers who need to understand their customers better or to develop a better product or a service. Employers only need to know how to tap into them.

Internet Evolution – Peter Bowman – Home: The New Brick & Mortar

 

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

the “work at home agent” (WAHA!) trend is growing at a rate of over 35 percent per year and is expected to continue at that level of growth well past 2012. The reality is that customer service and sales representatives, and other general office workers once bound to a cubicle, are now quickly shifting to more “flexible environments.”
