    What Is Mobile Authentication? Mobile Authentication.png

    Today, mobile phones can pretty much do anything that was once traditionally done on a computer. Online shopping, paying bills, checking bank accounts, you name it. Both consumers and employers tend to use personal mobile devices in the office and on the go, so securing those devices from potential hackers is a crucial step to implement in your routine.

    Mobile authentication is the verification of a user’s identity through the use of a mobile device and one or more authentication methods to ensure secure access. If you want to keep your online accounts safe, enabling mobile authentication across your devices is the single most important step you can take. While no security measure is fully hack proof, there are steps to lock access to your important accounts and information.

    How Women in Sales are Balancing Work and Family in 2021 Women in sales

    This past September, Twilio had the privilege of being a gold sponsor of the 4th Annual Sistas In Sales Summit 2021. For those who aren't aware, Sistas in Sales is an organization that unites women of color together in a series of networking events, panel discussions, and socials to provide mentorship, access to sales leaders, and community.

    Why is work/life balance important? And why now?

    According to McKinsey's latest Women in the Workplace report, a year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic, women in corporate jobs are even more burned out than they were a year ago—and increasingly more so than men. Despite this, it's women who are stepping up to support employee well-being and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. That's especially true of women of color who have ambitions to be top executives despite facing so many challenges to advancement — not the least of which is work-life …

    How to Set Up a Remote Contact Centre setting-up-remote-contact-centre

    The pandemic greatly accelerated the shift to remote contact centres. Analysts project that 53 per cent of the contact centre workforce could be working remotely by 2023. Working remotely is so appealing to workers that nearly half say they would look for another job if they were no longer able to work remotely.

    The benefits of a remote workforce aren’t all on the employee side, of course. Businesses can benefit from lower overhead and a larger pool of accessible potential recruits. The flexibility of remote work can help attract top talent, too.
