我们从企业的“云概念下的员工”以及工作弹性制中学到了什么呢？这是 GigaOM’s Net:Work 大会上各分会场的专家们收到的问题之一。
Trada 的Niel Robertson说：“我们每个人有自己和客户合作的方式，”但可以肯定的是，在企业中运用弹性工作的过程中一定有我们可以从中获益的东西，其中最为重 要的一个方面，如 LiveOps的 Maynard Webb提到的，“如何让人们在依照自己的方式工作时保持激情。”
Amazon Mechanical Turk 副总裁 Sharon Chiarella 认为除了使人们工作合作时具有弹性，弹性的员工机制提供了一种方法，即在增加了时间这个优势的情况下，完成并且强化质量的要求。
CloudCrowd 的Alex Edelstein考虑公司是否应该“将员工局限于某一个地区“，但是他也认为“质量，时效，成本”是更为重要的最终目标。Webb补充说：“在全球来 说，我们应该是在同一个球场上。” Sharon Chiarella认为在今天的环境中，没有“任何理由只去依赖一个国家或者一个系统”
What have been the lessons learned about “the human cloud” and the elastic workforce in the enterprise? That’s just one of the questions posed for a panel of experts on crowdsourcing at GigaOM’s Net:Work event.t
As Niel Robertson of Trada mentioned, “We each work with customers in a different way,” but certainly, there must be lessons in how to apply and use that elasticity within a business, and one of the most important ways, as noted by Maynard Webb of LiveOps, is “how passionate people are when they work on their own terms.”
Beyond providing flexibility in how people are able to work and collaborate, the elastic workforce provides a way to deliver and enforce quality while adding the advantage of time, as Amazon Mechanical Turk VP Sharon Chiarella commented.
Alex Edelstein of CloudCrowd wondered if companies should “constrain our workforce by location,” but as he argued, “quality, time, and cost” are ultimately more important. Webb added, “globally, we ought to have a level playing field.” Sharon Chiarella said there is “no reason to make a bet on one country or one infrastructure” in today’s setting.
The underlying theme, as Webb noted: people should be able to “work on their terms,” and as Chiarella stated, “technology allows people to have a choice.”
