The Business Case for Connected Worker Strategy

You are likely reading this webpage on your smartphone, between following directions to a new restaurant and sending a picture to a group chat. With a couple taps on a screen, smartphones provide instant access to data from anywhere in the world, real-time collaboration and communication, and a million other benefits that make our lives easier. 

This is the world we live in 2019, outside of work. However, in the process industry, these luxuries disappear for our front-line workers as soon as they clock in for the day. Processes and workflows have not evolved in 10 to 20 years, and they completely ignore the technological advances we enjoy in our everyday lives. 

It's like telling accountants they can use a calculator at home, but they have to count on their fingers at work! 

Connected Workers are front-line employees who utilize modern technologies (mobility, sensors, wearables) to help make their jobs easier, safer and more efficient.
