Deskless workers are truly the unsung heroes of the workforce, and for many industries such as retail, food service, and hospitality these hundreds of millions of workers are a company’s backbone, interacting with customers and making things happen. Although they are incredibly critical to the success of business, these deskless workers frequently don’t have the dedicated workspaces or proper applications they need to stay connected with management and each other.
This severely limits the transmission of information between these deskless teams. Even worse, it makes deskless workers and their supervisors rely on slow, limiting, inefficient paper processes to perform simple tasks like:
- Creating and modifying schedules
- Swapping shifts
- Distributing new information to employees like policy updates, manuals, and guidelines
- Setting up meetings between deskless workers
This is especially frustrating when these employees frequently have powerful smartphones in their pockets and purses. Microsoft has eliminated these issues and changed the way deskless workers communicate and manage their life at work with Microsoft StaffHub - an app currently available in public preview on the web, iOS, and Android.
Using an intuitive and straightforward interface of communication, collaboration, and scheduling tools, StaffHub gives deskless workers access to levels of productivity they never had before.
How Microsoft StaffHub Works
Managers use the StaffHub web app to create schedules, manage requests for shift swaps or time off, and share information with the team.
Employees use the mobile app to view their shifts, submit shift and time-off requests, and communicate with the team.
With Microsoft StaffHub, the back-and-forth phone calls, text messages, and email change requests can be eliminated, and managers of deskless teams can interact in real time - making sure schedules, information, and meeting times are all up to date. Anything shared between deskless workers is readily available by the entire team, significantly reducing the time it takes to get everyone working with the same information.
