Keeping employees engaged is a concern for companies around the world: new findings from ADP Research Institute, which makes and shares data-based discoveries about all aspects of the world of work, reveal stark differences in engagement between countries, industries, and job types.

Spoiler alert: implementing a digital platform in your organization will definitely help!
Google always uses its annual developer conference to drop big updates to its hardware and software lines, and this year’s I/O was no exception.

London mayor Sadiq Khan will give 200 small businesses in London a share of £200,000 to enhance their use of AI. He recognizes the City as a leading hub for innovation in artificial intelligence, and some of the advances being made over the past few years are indeed revolutionizing how business is done. So why stopping now?
SMEs are the lifeblood of the UK’s economy and these innovations should be available to companies of all sizes! This is exactly why an initiative like Khan’s Technology for Business scheme can change not only the future of many companies but also London’s AI and Tech landscape over the forthcoming years.
