How communication and connection elevate the employee experience and drive business success

For employers and HR departments, keeping dispersed employees informed, engaged, motivated, and productive is complicated and costly – but critical – for the business's success. 

Getting teams to communicate and collaborate is also challenging when they’re all in different locations.

The key to effectively engaging a dispersed workforce or ‘deskless employees’ is to meet them where they’re already actively engaged.
