London and San Francisco – June 11, 2019 – StaffConnect, the leading provider of mobile employee engagement solutions for the deskless workforce,announced today the launch of StaffConnect platform version 2.4 (v2.4). Key highlights include powerful analytics, and advanced functionality for segmenting users and delivering targeted content and messages. StaffConnect v2.4, with 5,000 unique groups assignable to 100 unique categories, enables administrators to efficiently create targeted content that is both relevant and meaningful and can be shared quickly, easily and directly with specific audiences across an organization – whether that be a specific employee, department, role, building, etc. With StaffConnect v2.4, feeds can be made as complex or as simple as the use case requires.

StaffConnect’s latest eBook entitled, “How Can Enterprises Overcome the Global Employee Engagement Crisis That Impacts 2.7 Billion Deskless Employees” pointed to the statistic from Emergence Capital that 80 percent of the global workforce is deployed remotely and offsite, creating a deskless labor force of over 2.7 billion people. It also explains that deskless employees face considerable limitations versus those onsite in terms of communication and access to company systems. This in turn negatively impacts their engagement level, which leads to lower productivity, and ultimately a negative impact on the bottom-line. Employee disengagement also leads to job dissatisfaction and employee turnover, which the Bureau of National Affairs reported accounted for over $11 billion in losses.

StaffConnect customer, Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) understands this challenge well.  Like most healthcare organizations, BCUHB relies on a vast network of offsite professionals – those in the field – from doctors, nurses and therapists, to kitchen, maintenance and technical staff.  Many do not have workday access to a desktop or laptop computer, and primarily rely upon smart handheld devices.  “While email works for our desk-based staff, there’s a big contingency of our workforce who just can’t find the time to get on to a computer as part of their working day,”said Aaron Haley, Communications Officer atBCUHB. “We wanted the new internal communications tool to be completely voluntary, and we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to improving internal communications with a platform that meets the needs of all our employees, regardless of their role or location. StaffConnect ticked all of those boxes.”
