How can an effective business phone system help your business retain the best talent?

Every business is only as good as its workforce – and attracting then holding onto your best people are now partly determined by how supportive, flexible, agile and efficient your communications and IT systems are.

Did you know that 75% of employees rank workplace flexibility as their most important benefit?

Better people means better business

Losing or being unable to attract top quality employees damages your ability to be competitive, while high levels of employee churn increase costs.

Digital natives’ demands

Younger workers expect to be able to share information easily and instantly, seamlessly switching between communications methods such as voice, video and messaging.  This becomes even more important when you consider that 75% of the workforce will be made up of the Millennial generation (born between 1982 and 2003) by 2025.

Your systems say a lot about you

The quality of your communications and IT systems can influence the quality of employee that you attract and retain.

Lack of delivery means departures

Traditional phone systems can’t deliver the flexibility and functionality that both young and old employees now take for granted. If they can’t work the way they want, your best employees will leave.

You need to ensure that your communications systems meet the needs of all your workers.  Poorly equipped employees equates to lost productivity and a demotivated workforce who will ultimately resign and leave you with expensive recruitment and training costs.

Today’s workforces are increasingly dispersed, but they still need to communicate and collaborate effectively – wherever and whenever. If employees don’t have access to the communication and collaboration tools they need, their productivity is adversely impacted.

Dispersed workforce

More and more businesses now have a mix of mobile workers, home workers and freelancers collaborating with office-based staff.

Information access

All your people need access to the same information and tools, and they all need to be in contact at anytime, from any location.

Productivity and profitability

Restricted access to the tools they need negatively impacts your people’s productivity – and lower productivity means lower profitability.

PBX inflexibility

Traditional PBX systems were designed for office-based personnel – not a flexible, mobile workforce – and can damage employee productivity.

Modernisation benefits

Improving productivity is often the primary reason why firms replace a PBX with modern communications solutions.

Did you know that by 2020, over 70% of firms will have adopted flexible working? However, traditional PBX systems were simply not designed for flexible working and can damage employee productivity. Communications.
