86% of Workers Say: ‘Mobile Access is a MUST’
September 21, 2015
Workers are no longer asking companies for the opportunity to work remotely—they’re demanding it. So if you’re not giving your employees the tools they need to do their jobs from anywhere, you can be sure they’ll find an employer that will.
Today, 27% of U.S. employees won’t even consider working for a company that won’t let them use their personal mobile devices to communicate with the office when necessary. Let that sink in for a minute. If you’re not providing employees the opportunity to work for you (albeit on their terms), many of them will seek another job elsewhere. And with a rejuvenated economy and talent at a premium, you can’t afford to hand more than a quarter of your potential workforce to your competitors on a silver platter.
Instant messaging and team communication apps are one of the easiest, fastest and least expensive ways to keep your employees happy, connected and playing for your team.
If it sounds like modern employee demands are unreasonable, consider the fact that there isn’t any daylight between what both workers and companies say they want. Seventy-two percent of organizations surveyed believe they could do a better job of providing their staff the tools they need to work remotely. That’s exactly the same as the percentage of employees who want technology that enables them to work from anywhere, at any time. If you’re not offering your employees what you both say you want, why not?
