WorkForce Software Recognised as a 2021 Nucleus WFM Value Matrix Leader for the 7th Year in a Row
Chief Technology Officer
Currently representing 80% of the total workforce, an estimated 2.7 billion employees are deskless workers who don’t have a designated working space. Whether on the factory floor, at the sales counter, out in the field, or on the road, deskless workers are the frontline of many organisations—the faces of businesses that customers see and interact with every day.
Because today’s workforce is significantly more diverse and digitally native, deskless workers are trained to expect commercial-grade productivity tools and rely heavily on technology to connect with their peers. In fact, access to better technology on the job is much more than a nice-to-have—it’s a deciding factor for employment. A substantial 78% of deskless workers say that the technology provided by an employer—and its usability and functionality—will ultimately influence whether or not they join a company.
Highly usable, consumer-grade technology also plays an important role in both retention and movement of new hires up the productivity curve as many deskless-worker industries have some of the highest turnover rates. Supermarkets and quick-service restaurants can experience up to 100% turnover each year. Especially in the new workplace, it’s critical that increased attention is paid not only to these employees, but also to the ways in which new technology improves their at-work experience and helps them be successful in their roles. While you can’t add more hours to the day, technology can help employees be more productive with the hours they do have by pushing the frontier beyond the office and helping employees where and when their work is happening.
Great technology connects people in ways that matter, in the moments that matter. It empowers us to do more, to create more, to be more—and always in a way that supports our own personal working styles or communication preferences. At WorkForce Software, we’re passionate about providing an exceptional end-to-end experience by building essential solutions that people love to use. That’s why we’re proud to be selected as a leader in the 2021 Nucleus Value Matrix for WFM, our seventh consecutive year in the leadership position.
