January is the time when everyone looks back and breathes a sigh of relief over the challenges conquered from the previous year ... now we can look forward to a new year with new challenges ... but what if we can get ahead of the curve, by anticipating what the 2014 trends will be?
What will 2014 bring your business and how will changes and trends effect you personally, know them now and they may help you later?
Trends are often focused on changes in technology and how we will work differently because of the opportunities those changes bring. Global competition and continued pressure to reduce costs also creates a climate of increased anxiety over employment. Mid-level employees will be looking for assurances and leadership development to keep longer-term career goals in line. Top talent will be looking for bigger and better opportunities.
