Amit Kochavi – Providing an Employee Engagement Platform for Deskless Employees



The deskless revolution has given birth to a modern labor force which includes personnel who work from home and employees who simply don’t perform desk jobs because of the nature of their work. Currently we are witnessing a paradigm shift, where our ways and techniques to approach work are changing significantly because of new tools and innovations in the corporate world. Since the emergence of COVID-19, people prefer to work at different places other than the office desk, and therefore the biggest challenge for organizations and managers is to maintain employee engagement and communication with the deskless employees.

Without an effective communication strategy in place, the dispersed employees can get disconnected easily, which would impact the corporate communication, company culture, employee productivity and the overall operations of the company in a negative way. Employee Engagement is crucial for the whole workforce, whether they perform a desk job or deskless job. Organizations that give importance to employee engagement and communication, build strong working relationships and develop deeper connection with employees based on integrity and trust.

The advantages of employee engagement are astonishingly extensive, ranging from increased productivity to a higher stock price. Less engaged workers are more likely to feel the pressure of work and may witness a lack of motivation. Employee engagement not only positively effects employee productivity and mindset, but also act as a cost saver by reducing turnover. Apart from these, employee engagement can lead to greater employee commitment, improved customer service, lower absenteeism rate, fewer errors, increased sales, higher revenue, improved employee health and better leadership. Employee engagement creates a sense of camaraderie among the employees and contributes to a healthier working environment. These benefits are mutually dependent on each other and are an important predictor of a business’s success and prosperity.

To sum it up, we can say that an engaged workforce makes it easier to run a business and helps leaders maintain their prime focus on process improvement, innovations and development, therefore we cannot deny the importance of employee engagement in the business world. During these challenging times, mobile is the best platform to carry out employee engagement initiatives to approach employees regardless of where they are working from.
