How to deal with a changing workforce, and how do companies drive collaboration and creative thinking?

As the Web makes it possible to work anywhere and any time, it has a profound impact on the employer-employee dynamic. With a more distributed workforce, how do executives manage and motivate their employees? What approach should be taken to younger employees who see social networking as an inherent part of their lives? And how do companies retain and harness more experienced employees who want work-life flexibility, which means escaping the cubicle but still working effectively remotely?
