How enterprise smartphones help you attract and retain a high-quality workforce
Finding and hiring high-quality workers is one of today’s biggest challenges. Keeping them on the job is another one. If you’re constantly filling a leaky bucket, it’s just a constant struggle. One thing you may not have considered is that investing in technology, such as enterprise smartphones, improves on-the-job satisfaction, which in turn helps you retain your best workers. Providing your staff with the latest, best technology not only makes them more efficient at their jobs, it keeps them happier on the job. And a happy employee is more likely to stick around for the long term.
There are 5.5 million more job openings right now than workers available to fill them according to the U.S. Labor Department.

Enterprise smartphones give your staff the tools to do their jobs while on the go (rather than going back and forth to access multiple systems). By making them more efficient and more productive, they actually help them enjoy their jobs more as well.
This isn’t some new bizarre concession to today’s entitled workforce. The best employees have always sought out jobs where they feel valued and are provided with the tools to make them better at their jobs. That’s true whether they’re coordinating hotel crews, assisting retail customers or working in a high-tech manufacturing facility. So with the shortage of workers today, investing in collaboration tools is a small price to pay to keep your staff happy.
It’s not always about the money
Wages are important, of course, but they are not the only factor affecting retention. And paying more than your competition isn’t the only tool in your toolkit for finding and retaining great workers. If you’ve ever looked at websites like Glassdoor, you’ll see that many of the things employees (and ex-employees) gripe about are working conditions and outdated technology. There’s an opportunity here to find and keep the best employees because you offer a better place to work with better technology. It’s like the Glassdoor slogan says: “You deserve a job that loves you back.”
The great thing about investing in enterprise mobile solutions from Spectralink is you’re investing in your business and your employees. Your staff will love working with advanced technology. You’ll love the productivity and efficiency gains. And everyone will appreciate the safety features (which can literally save the lives of workers in “man down” situations). It’s truly a win-win-win situation. Unlike throwing money at employees to keep them on the job, when you invest in technology, you own it and get to keep it when employees move on.
