A mobile workforce is one that can work from any location. Many companies today use the term “flexible” workforce or “flexible work arrangement” which can imply many things. You may have all full-time employees, but some work from home on a set schedule. Other nonprofits provide their workers with flexible arrangements so that if childcare or eldercare needs arise, employees can work from home without interruption.
A truly mobile workforce is one that can literally work from anywhere. Technology, enabled by Wi-Fi and cell phone connections, allows you to connect with software, cloud-based file services, instant messenger and of course, email, quickly and easily. With a mobile workforce, it doesn’t matter if you’re traveling to an event or conference or if you’re working in your office today; you have the same access, files, and ability to interact with your coworkers.
The Many Benefits of a Mobile Nonprofit Workforce
A mobile workforce provides many benefits to both your nonprofit and to those working there. When you implement technology that supports mobility, benefits include:
- Great employee satisfaction: Mobility provides flexibility. This means that employees no longer have to worry about having their personal days reduced if they have to leave work a few hours early for a doctor’s appointment or to pick up a child from school. Mobility enables them to keep working. This, in turn, leads to higher rates of job satisfaction and loyalty. When you trust people to work from home or to complete tasks away from the office, it boosts morale.
- Improved performance: Workplaces that embrace mobile technology find that along with improved efficiency is improved performance. Because it’s easier to continue working while traveling or from home, workers can continue with a task. You’ll find that on the whole, workplace productivity and performance increases with a mobile workforce.
- Less stress: When your employees no longer have to worry about how they’ll get tasks done because they always have access to the systems and files they need, it lifts a big burden from their shoulders. It’s amazing how much less stress is on your employees when a nonprofit embraces mobile technology.
