Harness the power of employee engagement

How to build connections with your deskless employees

Deskless employees make up 80% of the world’s workforce – that’s around 2.7 billion people – but many struggle to feel connected to their employers.

Your deskless teams are on the frontline, and have first-hand knowledge of the customer experience and insights for innovation. The challenge for you, as a leader, is gathering regular feedback you can use to drive change within your organisation.

WorkBuzz helps organisations like yours build an engagement strategy that works for your deskless workforce – through regular, real-time feedback from your people.

What employee engagement challenges are you facing?

Do you know why your deskless employees are leaving? Where are the biggest retention risks? Using the WorkBuzz platform, you can gather real-time feedback through regular employee listening and identify where these triggers are hiding. Our expert consultancy team will help you translate the feedback into positive change and keep hold of your deskless workforce.

Are your existing employee engagement surveys generating low response rates? Many employee listening platforms rely on corporate email addresses to gather replies. The WorkBuzz platform has flexible survey delivery routes, offering easier access for your deskless workers and more informed data for your leadership teams.

A lot of typical deskless roles involve physical, mental and emotional hazards. Stretched workforces often lead to slips in safety procedures – leading to a rise in accidents, decreased employee engagement, higher staff turnover and increased costs. WorkBuzz offers best practice questions focussing on health and wellbeing, alongside benchmarking from similar organisations to understand your organisation’s performance.

Are you struggling to fill your recruitment gaps? Have you considered your employer value proposition? WorkBuzz can give you regular insights from your existing employees to help you identify areas for improvement, build a better culture and attract new candidates.

Does your deskless workforce feel a connection to your organisational culture? Leadership teams are essential for driving culture improvements and it’s vital that change is based on data-driven insights. WorkBuzz can help you listen to your team, understand their concerns and find areas for improvement to build a culture people can buy in to.
