The Distributed Workforce Is Here
The way we work has fundamentally changed
The world is shifting to a distributed workforce where the old rules no longer apply
The way people work has changed for good. It’s time for your business to change with them.

Teams now live in different parts of the country and, possibly, even the world. Collaborating across projects and continents is becoming the new norm. At the heart of the distributed workforce is an opportunity to grow at unprecedented rates and harness the power of the global economy.
There is no question that technology is enabling this new reality. The emergence of Slack, G Suite, Box, Asana, Skype, GoToMeeting, and a host of other work tools are the infrastructure of the distributed workplace.
Yet people still drive organizations forward. The changing dynamics of the workplace create new opportunities for managers to connect people and harness talent and know-how. Distributed teams live and die by their ability to quickly learn, share key learnings, and take the right action at the right time.
Harness the power of the distributed organization
|Faster to market||Access more talent||Lower costs||Get more done|
Success in this new distributed workplace means greater access to specialized skills, faster project ramp-up time, quicker entry into new markets, and greater competitiveness with lower costs.
