For employees of all ages, the ability to work independently—and often remotely—is an important part of working in a human-centric business culture. The most progressive construction companies have begun to recognize that mobile workers are often happier and more productive than those who are strapped to a desk, especially when there is no clear reason to do so. Evidence suggests that the freedom and flexibility of mobile work translates into employees who are more efficient, a workspace that’s more dynamic, and ultimately, a better bottom line.
Mobility gives workers a new opportunity to function independently and perform at a higher level
We’ve already seen that mobile capabilities can help your company attract and hire the best talent; creating an authentically human-centric business culture will help you keep them. That’s important for a number of reasons. First, as noted, happy employees are productive employees, more likely to go the extra mile and perform at the highest possible level. Equally true is the fact that employees who are loyal to your company and committed to their jobs are a far better long-term investment than workers who come and go, taking their accumulated experience, knowledge and skill sets with them.
Companies that create an authentically human-centric business environment recognize that everyone on the payroll has demands on their time outside of the office. When employees are able to work from home or other off-site locations via mobile devices connected to the internet, they can better balance their lives and manage their time—taking care of family members and other obligations while meeting the needs of the business.HOW PROEST CAN HELP
