There is no argument that technology has progressed tremendously in the past decade. In today’s society, majorities of businesses have a tremendous amount of technological resources available to them and are used to communicate internally and externally. In my personal opinion, I believe that most businesses are using these resources effectively. These resources help to save time and are a pure convenience as means of communication.
Businesses used to rely on the use of note cards and white boards when giving presentations for representatives and co-workers. Today there are so many advancements in software available for the use of presentations. It isn’t uncommon for an individual to be able to write and construct a power point to present in a short matter of time.
WebEx is another technological use for communication. I work for a company that has a lot of branches spread out across the United States. We are able to have meetings and conduct training sessions via WebEx. This is a more personal feel for communication versus being called in via conference call.
The most popular form of communication that has advanced is the Internet. Most businesses have allowed employees to gain Internet access, this allows them to navigate around the company’s web page and communicate with other co-workers.
Ultimately, I would say the majority of businesses are using these technological resources effectively and productively. However, responsibility still lies on the business to monitor the use of these resources to be sure they are not being misused or putting the company at any type of risk.
