Employee Communications and the Work-From-Anywhere Revolution
The work-from-anywhere revolution has created a dispersed workforce that falls into two categories:
Those who work remotely or transitioned to working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic
Those who are away from a desk because of the nature of their job
Recent findings reveal employees are looking for more flexible work options with 65% of U.S. employees surveyed stating they would work from home full-time after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted if given the option. The second group, often referred to as deskless workers, includes people who don’t have a desk or fixed workspace, such as nurses covering a patient floor, a retail sales person or production workers in a factory.
Thanks to an ongoing paradigm shift in the way we approach work, people are spending more and more time working from a location other than their office desk. With the latest advancements in technology and communication, we can communicate with employees no matter where they are at any time. What does this mean for corporate communicators? How do we maintain productivity, influence company culture and engage our employees in this work-from-anywhere revolution?
Communicate Directly to Achieve Better Well-Being
Employee engagement and well-being are important for every employee — for remote and deskless workers alike. Employees who understand the purpose and initiatives of the organization tend to also have a deeper connection and sense of purpose at work. That’s why it’s so important to communicate directly with every employee and provide an environment where people feel connected, especially with the recent influx of remote employees.
No platform is better suited to support your employee engagement and well-being initiatives than mobile. Reach employees where they are, no matter where they are located. You’ll have the two-way communication you need to support employee listening, encourage participation and employee connections, and improve corporate reach.
