The mobile workplace in 2021: Employees work anywhere

Work is becoming more difficult in the mobile workplace. Our customer relationships are virtual, some employees are working remotely, while others are working in the office or on the go. And we’re relying more and more on technology to help us stay on top of our jobs.

Workplace complexity is one of the biggest challenges for today’s workers. Employees are overwhelmed with day-to-day tasks, searching for relevant information and content, and collaborating and communicating with coworkers.

With portable technology and mobile platforms, your employees can work virtually anywhere. According to a Forbes article, around 43% of Americans say they now work remotely, either full or part-time.

Enterprise organizations are quickly discovering that in order to succeed, they need great people. Your employees want to be engaged and valued by your company. Deloitte found that engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave their organizations.

An enterprise mobile platform makes it easy for employees to interact, engage, collaborate, and get more done during the course of the day. Here are 7 ways a mobile platform can work harder for your organization:

Simplify the mobile workplace

Your employees may be working from home, working at a remote location, or spending time between home and the office. Let’s just say they may not be sitting at a desk, day in and day out. They’re working in healthcare, walking the factory floor, selling products and services, and driving trucks. They are always moving. What better way to connect them than with their own custom-branded enterprise mobile platform? No matter where they are, your employees can connect with you via their mobile phones.

Consider a no-code platform experience

Companies are seeing a rise in no-code platforms that improve productivity and bring greater potential to the mobile workplace. No-code platforms allow businesses to improve specific processes, manage workflow, and create more efficiency. And these changes in workflow can happen in days or weeks, rather than in months or years.

Create an organized navigation structure

Your content, resources, and communications may be disorganized and siloed in different departments and divisions. A no-code enterprise mobile platform can give your employees access to the information they need right on their mobile device. Employees can quickly find the information they need by searching and filtering content within the app, and quickly and easily finding the resources they need – right at their fingertips.

Share company-wide news and alerts

Something has happened in your organization. It may be good news, or it might be bad news. Your employees need to know. You can quickly send a push notifications, emails, or articles to your entire organization so that everyone is in the know. Or, you might just need to send a message to a specific department, location, division, or team.

Provide training and educational opportunities

It’s important that enterprise organizations take the time to train employees. Professional learning and development on the job matters, especially for remote employees. A no-code enterprise mobile platform allows employees to train and learn right on their smartphones. That means employees can learn anytime and anywhere, even if they only have a few minutes to spare.

A recent LinkedIn “Workplace Learning Report” found that as many as 94% of employees said they would stay at a company longer if they invested in their learning and development. Mobile workplace training gives employees so many important benefits, such as greater job satisfaction, higher morale, improved skills, and greater productivity and efficiency.

Offer self-service support options

A powerful way to help your employees, especially when things are busy, is to point them to resources they can access on their own time and also share with teammates. You can create a Knowledge Base that employees can access to answer some of their most common questions. You can provide written answers, helpful articles about your products and services, and how-to videos you can share with employees.
