Microsoft 365 and Teams
Frontline workers play an essential role in mining, manufacturing and utilities, and there is increasing evidence to suggest empowering these workers – and focusing on wellbeing – delivers significant benefits:
Organisations that empower their frontline workers are 3 x more likely to be high-growth companies*
83% of organisations that empower frontline workers see higher levels of customer satisfaction*
64% of organisations that empower their frontline workers experience lower staff turnover*
However, many frontline workers lack the tools and processes to do their best work, which can lead to a lack of productivity, poor teamwork, frustration and unnecessary stress.
An inefficient frontline worker can cost a small business 166 hours,
or $4,000 per worker, per year.
