Skills you'll hire for in 2015:
Social and mobile technologies have become important business tools with wide-ranging capabilities that deliver benefits such as increased productivity through collaboration, customer engagement and ease of access. To leverage these technologies effectively, positions such as social and collaborative technologies lead and a mobility solutions developer will need to be created. Internal employees could be groomed for at least one of these positions.
Most innovative idea from your staff:
