Connecteam leadership talks about removing complexity so businesses can thrive

TechSpective Podcast Episode 086

Connecteam is an Israeli startup with a mission to provide everything a business needs to empower, manage and engage their officeless workforce. This mission is also resonating with investors, as the company recently announced a Series C funding of $120 million.

Global efforts to quarantine and limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic have dramatically accelerated digital transformation efforts. The pandemic has pushed companies to adopt a 100% work-from-home business model overnight and has fundamentally changed the way companies communicate and get things done.

From Connecteam’s perspective, however, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Of the 2.7 billion workers in the world, an estimated 80% are not tied to a desk. Entire industries – retail, services, shipping and logistics, transportation – are made up almost entirely of workers who, by their very nature, do not sit at desks. According to a 2018 report from Tribe, 83% of these “non-administrative employees” don’t even have a company email address. Yet most software/technology investments focus on office workers.

Connecteam CEO and Co-Founder Amir Nehemia and COO Yuval Magid join me on this episode of the TechSpective podcast to talk about the challenges of managing an officeless and/or remote workforce. We also discuss how to effectively address these challenges and provide employees with the resources and information they need.

Check out the full episode for more insight on removing complexity and effectively managing an officeless workforce. We also digress to talk about very interesting and relevant topics like the graffiti on the wall behind them.

The podcast itself is audio only, but the video of our conversation is also available on YouTube if you prefer:
