    The number of U.S. employees who work remotely is on the rise, largely due to advancements and improvements in unified communications (UC) systems. In fact, a 2016 Gallup survey found 43% of respondents worked from home at least once in the last year, and the U.S. Employee Workforce report cited a 115% increase since 2005 in the number of workers who worked from home at least half of the time. So, why the rise in popularity? It turns out that the ability to work remotely benefits not only employees, but the company, too. That’s why having a discussion with your partners about the implications of working remotely represents an investment in their business and in their human capital.

What do I mean by “Cisco Collaboration” in regards to this new role? I’m glad you asked...

    Two months ago, I received an email from my boss stating I would be attending Cisco Live in Orlando, FL. I remember the exact moment of receipt and the coinciding excitement and trepidation I felt because Cisco Live is a summit of some of the smartest minds in the world (I guess my boss thinks pretty highly of me!). After reading the bio of the celebrity keynote and theoretical physicist, Michio Kaku, I feared I would spend the week as dazed and confused as I was going through Orlando’s ai...
