Deskless Workers: Give a Voice to Your Deskless Workforce

Top 10 Employee Engagement Service Companies - 2021

Employee engagement is vital to building a successful business and its importance in the workplace cannot be understated. Therefore, to experience growth in business and simultaneously create a positive workplace, HR managers are constantly evaluating the trends around employee engagement.

Today, embracing flexibility has become a highlight in the employee engagement space. Due to the ‘new normal,’ most job functions do not require employees to be physically present at work every day. And to make work as smooth as possible with this decentralized working style, organizations are relying on cloud-based employee engagement solutions.

To bring the dispersed and isolated workforce together, internal communication apps have taken a pole position. One of the factors that make such communication apps so favorable is their impressive reach. These apps have also opened up communication channels between non-desk workers and helped to break down the barriers in employee engagement. The immediacy of these apps has also proved highly practical in the current working climate. HR leaders have found an increased demand for time-specific, often instantaneous messaging. Instant notifications have become a must-have specification of employee engagement solutions and apps.

The shift to digital has also become necessary to create a sense of belonging amongst a scattered workforce. By providing employees’ a social space where they can chat and share, the employee engagement apps help restore the workplace culture in these turbulent times.

At this juncture, many employee engagement solution providers and consulting companies are entering the domain with advanced and integrated offerings. To help the HR sector strengthen its operational capabilities and simultaneously enable growth in the industry, HR Tech Outlook has compiled a list of top employee engagement solution providers and consulting companies. The list comprises prominent organizations in the industry that address issues pertinent to the HR sector by implementing current trends.
