Think of the rise of millennials as a double-edged sword.
Let’s imagine you’re looking to streamline your processes with a new online project management application, chances are that the millennials in your office will have the most positive responses to this change. This is, in part, because they grew up with technology and are comfortable using it. In addition to this, they see the value these tools can add from a productivity perspective; making it easier to work remotely and introducing greater flexibility into the workplace. Younger generations are also generally more educated than their older counterparts – Especially from a tech perspective.
On the other side of the spectrum, when it comes to the modern recruitment process, it would appear that some power has shifted from the employer to the employee. Millennials know what they do and do not want from a job. And they are comfortable asking for things they consider important.
Given the fact that the millennial generation will make up 75% of the global workforce by 2025, business leaders need to be thinking about how to attract the most talented millennials and keep this workforce happy. Millennials in the workplace are mobile, they demand greater freedom, flexibility and understand the value of work-life balance. They also want to be able to utilise the same tools and technologies that they use in everyday life, in the workplace. For business executives, this means loosening the reigns a little.
So, how do modern businesses give these technophiles what they want without relinquishing too much control?
Mobile expense management is a logical first step.
Nebula’s telecoms expense and lifecycle management (TEM) system, OneView automates the management of your entire telecoms environment, providing you with all the product features you need to enable millennials in the workplace and achieve high performance business success.
Here’s are five reasons why OneView is the ideal Mobile Expense Management platform to help you up productivity and efficiency while enabling your millennial mobile workforce:
#1 Optimising BYOD and COPE policies
Is BYOD (bring your own device) the right approach for your business? Maybe COPE (Corporate owned, personally enabled) would be more suitable? With OneView, it doesn’t matter what mobile device management policy you’ve implemented, you’ll easily be able to track and manage employee profiles. This way, you can allow employees to use both corporate and/or personal devices but still have a level of control over their network usage.
#2 Simplifying claims
When employees are using their personal devices for business, they often feel bogged down by the time-consuming and manual claims process. OneView allows users to tag calls as either personal or business, thus making the claims process seamless.
#3 Integration with all service providers
Millennials want a package to suit their unique needs. As a result, business owners will have to deal with a variety of service providers, which can be a logistical nightmare. With OneView’s service provider integration, you are able to manage profiles linked to any provider’s network and manage associated contracts and costs. This also makes it easier to keep tabs on any billing irregularities that may occur.
#4 Usage notifications to track spend
Due to millennials being highly flexible and mobile, they use a lot of mobile data in order to keep in contact with team members and clients. This means that the risk of running out of data is high. No one wants to have to fork out excessive amounts of money on out-of-bundle rates. The OneView Notification Centre provides automated alerts and usage notifications to prevent overspending and bill shock.
#5 Giving mobile employees the power
The OneView mobile app is a great asset for members of a mobile workforce. OneView Lite creates spend awareness by giving employees a real-time view of their own mobile spend (this includes mobile phones, tablets and dongles). Therefore the risk of paying out-of-bundle charges is significantly decreased.
With various packages and support options, OneView makes it easier for businesses to achieve structure within their mobile workforce.
