We spend a third of our lives at work, using technology to perform our roles. The impact of technology in the workplace is far greater than just being productive and performing our tasks. Technology has a direct impact on revenue, creativity, collaboration, well-being and job satisfaction.

An Intelligent Workplace considers the impact that technology choices will have on people, customers and revenue. In this series, Chris speaks with industry experts and explores the new ideas and technologies that are shaping the modern workplace, and how it will transform our working lives.
