It is important to ensure workers feel supported when carrying out their roles.
COVID-19 has exacerbated many of the pressures on workers, especially those who need to remain on site or operate underground.
Workers may feel under pressure in their roles due to a variety of reasons, including poor communication and collaboration, complex operations, dated and ineffective technology, inefficient processes, poor change management, a lack of training and skills growth, and more.
However, there is plenty of evidence to suggest the right tools and technology that deliver meaningful and real time data can play a vital role in empowering teams and employees.
This eBook, by the technology experts at Insight, explains how providing frontline workers with robust devices, equipped with Microsoft 365 and Teams, can go a long way towards addressing some of these key challenges – thus improving communication, ensuring greater productivity and safety, driving greater autonomy, and improving overall job satisfaction.
