This blog series shows how Microsoft Teams simplifies manufacturing processes and improves company communication with frontline workers, improving their day-to-day work experience and increasing your organization’s overall efficiency.
Frontline workers are essential, but often overlooked.
As manufacturing companies continue to modernize applications and information flow, the knowledge gap between frontline workers (FLWs) and office workers widens. While office “knowledge workers” have independent access to updated information and automation programs, often FLWs learn information from face-to-face interactions with their manager, leaving many FLWs feeling one step behind, if not left out altogether.
Microsoft Teams both informs and supports FLWs with modern task-based digitized tools. Teams provides FLWs with on-demand information while also assisting frontline managers (FLMs) in managing critical operations, including scheduling, reporting and training. By streamlining routine tasks and eliminating communication roadblocks, Teams improves FLW performance and, most importantly, ensures their safety.
This four-part series details the advantages of Teams for frontline workers and explains how to incorporate this technology into your existing infrastructure, so you can close the information gap and empower your FLWs to succeed.
