TechSpective Podcast Episode 086
Connecteam is an Israeli startup with a mission to provide everything a company needs to empower, manage, and engage its deskless workforce. That mission is resonating with investors as well, as the company recently announced $120 million in Series C funding.
Global efforts to quarantine and limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have dramatically accelerated digital transformation efforts. The pandemic drove businesses to adopt a 100% remote, work-from-home business model overnight, and has fundamentally changed the way companies communicate and get things done.
From Connecteam\’s perspective, though, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Of the 2.7 billion workers in the world, an estimated 80% are not tied to a desk. Entire industries–retail, service, shipping and logistics, transportation–are comprised almost entirely of workforces that, by their very nature, do not sit at a desk. According to a 2018 report by Tribe, 83% of these “non-desk employees” don’t even have a corporate email address. Yet most software/tech investment is focused on office workers.
Connecteam CEO and co-founder Amir Nehemia, and COO Yuval Magid join me on this episode of the TechSpective Podcast to talk about the challenges of managing a deskless and/or remote workforce. We also talk about how to effectively address those challenges and provide employees the resources and information they need.
Check out the full episode for more insights on removing complexity and effectively managing a deskless workforce. We also digress to talk about very interesting and relevant topics like the graffiti on the wall behind them.
The podcast itself is audio-only, but the video of our conversation is also available on YouTube if you prefer:
