There’s no doubt the workplace is changing. From the assembly line to the boardroom, the rules and regulations that govern how employees are recruited, compensated, trained, retained and disciplined are constantly in flux. Technology platforms like Slack and Zoom are redefining communications dynamics in the workplace.
