Untangle the Technology Gap

The Modern Workplace 

Are your staff currently struggling with their new digital presence? 

COVID-19 has further progressed our digital footprint, propelling our digital collaboration forward. Virtual learning, virtual meetings, zoom calls with your mum, are all things that previously existed but weren’t necessarily a part of everyday life.

The benefits of a workplace virtual learning policy, processes and training program

Ensuring your staff are proficient in their digital ability is now essential and we are seeing a large number of people struggling to effectively engage online or struggling to troubleshoot any problems that may occur.

TNA’s arise due to organisational problems, which in this case would be changing technology and changing work environments threatening the performance of the staff.

  • Are there any new tasks your employees are performing now? 

The best approach 

To determine whether a TNA is the best approach follow these steps:
