Workforce Trends

"Over the past decade or so, employers across virtually all industries have digitized their business functions and processes. Today, most businesses utilize software — and increasingly SaaS platforms — to manage functions like supply chain, sales, marketing, customer service, finance, IT and HR. So the biggest change in the entry-level workforce over the past decade is that many more jobs are mediated primarily if not entirely by these software platforms." Ryan Craig, Forbes
