May 23, 2024

Struggling with labor shortages in the field service sector? Are you losing older team members and a wealth of knowledge too? Check out Blumberg Advisory Group’s report on how you could be leveraging push-to-talk technology to navigate the inter-generational change.

Not managing to plug the knowledge gap being left by retiring baby boomers in your field service organization? Looking for an affordable, agile solution?

Read Blumberg Advisory Group's white paper exploring the use of push-to-talk technology for small businesses in the field service sector at https://www.blumbergadvisor.com/leveraging-push-to-talk-technology

The report discusses how Push-To-Talk (PTT) technology is helping to ease this problematic generational transition. With Millennials and Generation Z now stepping into the roles previously occupied by more traditionally minded workers, PTT allows you to meet the preferences of younger generations for tech-driven experiential learning.

Collective Intelligence

The white paper highlights the importance of effective communication for field service organizations. The ability to harness the collective intelligence and experience of your entire workforce makes each service call an opportunity to share knowledge, expand the capabilities of technicians, and improve the quality of your service for customers.

A Changing Workforce

The generational shift in staffing for field service organizations means that your operatives are now more likely to prioritize life-work balance, pursue meaningful and impactful work ahead of job security, and remain for less time in a position. The report explains that the average job tenure for millennials is 2.8 years compared with seven years for the baby boomer generation.

Knowledge Capture

According to the white paper, this means you're challenged with not only finding new talent but also capturing the critical knowledge held by retiring workers. These challenges can be met, the paper explains, through the adoption of Airwave's PTT which features a user-friendly interface and facilitates efficient knowledge acquisition.

Real-Time Mentorship

The report explains that the platform enables real-time mentorship during service calls, ensuring that the experience and knowledge of your outgoing workers are passed on to the younger generations. Voice recording features can also capture the insights of retiring professionals.

Interactive Learning

Airwave's product allows you to create interactive learning materials using videos and images, improving engagement and staff retention levels. The Blumberg report goes on to discuss how the PTT application's use of AI facilitates scanning digitized versions of documents like repair manuals from which audio excerpts can be created and made available to workers – appealing to the tech-enabled, on-the-job learning preferences of your emerging workforce.

The report states, “Push-to-Talk (PTT) technology is the optimal solution for Field Service Organizations, especially in the face of labor shortages and the "Silver Tsunami. Its ease of use, alignment with younger generations' learning styles and communication preferences, and rapid implementation make it a strategic choice. PTT stands out as the ideal choice for SMBs due to its affordability, quick ROI, and minimal change management requirements.”
