29 Jul Connected Workers Connect Hearts
Has your Christian organization or ministry team adapted fully to flexible or remote working? How have you been seeking digital opportunities to share your vision and leadership knowledge to inspire others? What steps can you take to connect hearts and minds to advance The Good News of Jesus Christ?
New technologies and enhancing donor engagement are key initiatives for Christian organizations and nonprofits seeking digital transformation, The most important reason for prioritizing this shift is to embrace entirely new opportunities for growth. No Christian organization, private or public sector is immune from the powerful effects of connected devices and real-time communication platforms.
Flexible or remote working looks different depending on your institution, organization, or sector. Team members who carry out different tasks remotely using digital technologies are known as connected workers. Know the term. The term is not a one-size-fits-all. There are many different types of connected workers with different roles such as executives, board members, educators, team members, missionaries, and volunteers. Titles don’t seem to matter much anymore in any industry. Every connected worker plays a crucial role in digital reach and transformation.
Connected Worker Technologies
A connected device has the ability to connect with other devices and systems through the internet. The connected worker device market foresees extreme growth over the next two decades. By harnessing this power, connecting workers to their audiences proves targeted and timely.
Platforms: Hardware or software that uses artificial intelligence like chat bots and data to allow communications and processes remotely and around the clock.
Interfaces: Technologies such as Slack or MS Teams that enable peer-to-peer information sharing.
Cloud and edge computing: Using the cloud allows workers to communicate with each other and manage shared data more efficiently.
Smart sensors and IoT devices: Sensors that monitor assets provide a more holistic overview of processes in real-time and prevents dangerous incidents.
When teams connect in real-time, they make more inclusive and informed decisions—becoming more efficient and effective in their roles and responsibilities. Potential results:
Improved accuracy and fewer mistakes
Increased proficiency and productivity
Reduced costs and saved time
Reduced dangerous mission field incidents
Implementing connected worker technologies continues to be an increasingly important priority. Not only is digital transformation important for taking advantage of new growth opportunities, but it’s crucial for the future of Christian organizations.
What will become of your beloved open-door policy and office plan? Work-life plans may have changed for good. One beloved approach remains the same – People over policy. So, what to do next? The same as usual, but with new methods. Connect the hearts and minds of your donors, board members, volunteers, teams, and mission field workers. Embrace technology and digital communications. Share the Good News Of Jesus Christ.
