Fair wages and job security. That’s the first thing we can think of when we list out the needs of deskless employees. But in today’s corporate environment, safe and healthy working conditions are the bare minimum. As the markets turn competitive, workers seek respect and recognition for their contributions, work-life balance, flexible schedules, and opportunities for training and advancement.
Companies need to ensure that all employees (including their blue collar staff) have the accessibility to be involved in decision-making processes, clear communication channels, and a safe space for consistent feedback that goes both ways. Offering benefits like healthcare, retirement plans, and paid leave can give an organization the competitive edge needed to retain its top workers.
