On January 17, WorkJam, a preferred digital workplace partner for organizations with hourly workers, announced partnering with VMware, a premier enterprise software provider. The partnership will connect WorkJam’s communication, learning, task management, and shift management solutions with VMware’s Workspace ONE, a unified end management (UEM) platform. The interoperability between the two digital workplace service providers will enable companies to deliver a more uniform digital employee experience, with improved productivity and reduced costs. The partnership was announced on the first day of the NRF 2022, one of the largest annual retail trade shows.
Workspace ONE’s customers will be able to use WorkJam’s time and attendance data to deploy selective restrictions on confidential corporate content including inventory management as well as buy online, pick-up in store (BOPIS) applications, at a time when employees are off the clock.
The combination of WorkJam and Workspace ONE will enable organizations employing frontline workers to:
Deliver a consolidated digital employee experience
Refine communication channels and operational processes
Cultivate a learning culture with incentivized learning and upskilling
Enhance employee retention and work performance through a consistent employee experience
Provide a uniform, organization-wide consumer experience
"Frontline workers need to access productivity tools via multiple touch points throughout the day, which can cause serious risk for both security and productivity if not handled thoughtfully. That's why WorkJam and VMware are coming together. As businesses continue to navigate change in a time of technological advancement, it's becoming increasingly important for businesses to prioritize clarity, accessibility, and security."
- Rich Halbert, Chief Strategy Officer at WorkJam,
"Empowered and digitally connected employees can make all the difference for retailers. BYO and COPE policies enable retailers to redefine the employee experience and maintain a competitive advantage. Together with WorkJam, we are powering the future of digital workspaces to help our customers better deploy BOYD and COPE with the privacy employees demand and the enhanced data security that IT requires. Armed with the necessary tools to make their jobs easier and more productive, employees can transform the retail experience from the inside out."
