9 Deskless Solutions Every Leader Should Keep an Eye on

By Natalia Markovskaia Published on Apr. 27, 2020

For many industries, the state of the workforce has evolved over the last several months: layoffs, reduction in salaries and jobs, to name a few. Fortunately, modern companies are resetting many of the unacceptable global norms around work and moving towards the deskless workforce arrangements. 

This transition implies a whole paradigm shift in corporate culture. Right now, companies really need to inject maximum flexibility in their business processes and its leaders adjust to the new circumstances. 

During our virtual event “Supporting Remote Workers in a Black Swan Event” we have seen nine thriving startups that provide infrastructure and communication technology to enable every leader to work effectively, focusing on employee and company wellbeing.
