The world of work has changed fundamentally in recent years. Under the keyword "new work", more and more companies are relying on flexible working time models, digital tools, mobile working and independent work organisation.

What is new work?
New work is a concept which stands for a new way of working. It is not only about a change in the working environment, but, more importantly, about a new understanding of work and career. The focus is on self-determination, personal responsibility and the opportunity to develop one's own abilities. This development affects both employees in the office and in the mobile workforce.

Their digital working world is flexible, location- and time-independent with the help of modern cloud-based solutions or tools for digital collaboration and time recording. But what about mobile teams? In many industries, such as healthcare, retail and hospitality, the mobile workforce now makes up the majority of all workers, but is given little to no consideration in the digital transformation of workforce planning.
Mobile teams especially often lack digital tools to facilitate collaboration. Communication is poor, work instructions are often unclear and working time models are inflexible. This can lead to stress, inefficiency and high absenteeism. But how can companies make the positive effects of new work accessible to the mobile workforce?
