Each year, we publish a white paper to help businesses and their tech leaders make sense of the ever-changing landscape when it comes to communications, collaboration, productivity and engagement. When we shared our first one in 2014, mobile was still the focus, with cell phones being the one device 96% of people had access to at all times.
While that's still true, the way people -- including customers, employees and suppliers -- are using them is changing. One of the biggest shifts? The days of downloading "native apps" from app stores and the endless cycle and expense of having to maintain them across multiple platforms are over, as the "Progressive Web App" technology makes an any-device, anywhere, anytime approach mainstream.
Confused? We've got you! Our new white paper, “The 2019 Future of Apps: Progressive Web Apps Grow and Mature” includes insights on app trends and industry predictions from tech leaders on the current mobile market as the world of “native apps” and “progressive web apps” merge. Here's a taste ...

How do you cultivate meaningful moments of celebration in the workplace in a way that respects the diversity of cultures and traditions that make up the beautiful tapestry of your people? At one point or another, most of us have done the potlucks, the ugly Christmas sweaters and the Secret Santa gift exchanges. But the celebrations that pack in the most meaning and fun are the ones built around "experiences" not more "stuff."
At a time of year when budgets are already stretched thin, here are a handful of ways to reinvent holiday celebrations in the workplace, including the virtual ones, with a focus on inspiring experiences and "presence" not "presents."
Here's how to kick it "InspireHUB" style ...

“Hands up! baby, hands up! Gimme your heart! gimme, gimme your heart! Gimme gimme!” My favourite part of the day on the line had just arrived because Brenda had just put on our two o’clock song as we worked. It always made me laugh because the line (which was made up entirely of women) would all pump their hands in the air at the same time every time the singer said: “Hands up!”
I’m from a manufacturing community where “working on the line” is a right of passage for many and I was no different. As a teenager, my time spent here would be critical in shaping my views on work and also my character. The reality is that this small manufacturer was way ahead of their time. I remember the leaders were very concerned with creating a positive culture. They worked hard to create a team environment and to protect the workplace.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation enacted this May came packed with some serious headaches for corporate gatekeepers responsible for protecting users' personal information and unprecedented penalties for those who don't adhere to it.

While there's no magic bullet to get you on the right side of this sweeping legislation fast, there are a handful of things to help your marketing and IT departments make the changes needed now.
Here’s what you need to know about keeping the user data you are entrusted with safe and in compliance.

How important is a morale booster to your team? Many communicators are stuck in ancient protocols that leave their internal communications boring and dry. As research points out, employee engagement leads to both a happier workforce and a significantly healthier bottom line.
An increasing number of organizations are finding interesting lessons in the art of play, and more specifically in "gamification." Gamification recognizes that human behaviour revolves around the need for "validation" and "rewards" so finding what things are most meaningful to your employees in those areas and simple ways of "making it so" can be game-changers.
Here are 6 games you can adapt right now...
