While events such as Employee Appreciation Day sound like a nice idea, more often than not, the deskless workforce is left out of the festivities. Deskless employees, an estimated 2.4 billion global workers, may feel more marginalized and frustrated than ever during these corporate holidays. In fact, research indicates that only half of the deskless workforce feel engaged by their employers.
These workers don’t just need appreciation, they require access to important company information and communications in order to do their jobs more effectively. This includes scheduling, training materials, benefits information and HR portals. This is where mobile comes into play. A mobile communications app for employees will ensure they receive more effective internal communications that will have a lasting impact and will undoubtedly improve employee engagement.
