Joyce Maroney, executive director of The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated, welcomes Workforce Institute board member Bob Clements, president at Axsium Group, to discuss the chapter he wrote for the most recent Workforce Institute book, “Being Present: A Practical Guide for Transforming the Employee Experience of Your Frontline Workforce,” about the unique benefits of technology – notably, mobile – and how it can be used with today’s frontline workforce to communicate information from all aspects of an organization.
Topics discussed include:
- Why mobile technology is an effective medium to communicate with the modern frontline worker who may not regularly utilize other technological channels, such as email, compared to office worker counterparts;
- The important role of effective communication with your frontline workforce, especially in times of crisis or uncertainty;
- The opportunity to form stronger relationships and a more immanent connection with your workforce; and
- Leveraging mobile for idea-sharing, training, and other non-traditional concepts.
