IT and HR departments are expected to deliver on this demand for flexibility and drive workplace engagement in an increasingly competitive recruiting environment, while Marketing are expected to deliver increasingly high penetration campaigns with static or shrinking budgets. Over the past few weeks our communications experts at Arkadin have outlined the ways a unified communications strategy can address these workplace demands and drive forward top-level strategic goals.
