I read another story today where a local publicly traded company laid off a hundred people. It reminded me of a question that frequently arises during the interview process: “Is your “small” company capable of sustaining my employment?” It comes out a little differently each time, but that is what they’re asking. In an effort to be transparent, I have always said anything can happen; however, don’t let size fool you. You will always have a better feel for what’s going on behind the iron curtain at a small company than you ever would at a large one.
There is a new workforce of young people coming out of college that see the world differently. This generation, dubbed Millennials, is a unique group of young professionals that are unlike past generations for numerous reasons. Managers and business leaders need to understand how Millennials think and how their views differ from that of the current (and past) workforce.
We’ve outlined 5 facts that every compliance manager and business leader should know about Millennials. Here is an excerpt from a recent whitepaper:
Does your company have existing network storage devices?
Do your employees access multiple mapped drives across your network?
Are you paying a 3rd party file sharing service to send and receive files online?
Does your company have an in-house FTP server?
There is a good chance that your network administrator is managing and responsible for some, if not all, of those tasks. That means time and money for each and depending on the size of the user-base it could be costly. What if you could combine those services and tasks into a single device? That is exactly what FileHubTM does. Reduced your paid services, management responsibilities, file redundancy, and much more with this amazing feature.
Large businesses have become accustomed to getting charged per user (or seat) on many business software applications. This type of cost has been the standard for a long time, so it’s typical for business to expect this and for typical software companies to implement this. This is no different in the business file-sharing arena.
SmartFile has recently released a desktop sync client for Windows (sorry Mac, we’re working hard to get to you soon)! This gives everyone another easy way to access and manage their files without even logging into SmartFile. This early release of the sync client is in beta with a few known issues, but we want to offer it to our customers free of charge to use as they please. All accounts have access to download and install the desktop sync (or you can easily restrict your users to disable the feature). Either way, SmartFile now offers local sync!
Staying informed and up to date on certain activity is imperative. Some activity is more important that others, but just think of the social media notifications (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) that people receive everyday alerting them instantly to activity related to their accounts. Activity indications and alerts are built in features that have become a necessity to stay relevant in a fast-paced world.
