Enterprises around the world are confronted with new challenges driven by a workforce undergoing massive change on both cultural and technological fronts. Today’s workforce offers the potential to bring together five generations of workers within one company, including “digital natives” — those exceptionally comfortable with the rapid changes occurring across technology.

New policies demonstrate a fundamental shift in the way we work and what is, and is not, considered acceptable by both employer and employee.
Yet, one question remains: Can enterprises keep pace with the modern workforce by supplying the devices, management and processes required to support this new way of working?
