Concrete, an employee engagement and task management platform, and Legion Technologies, the pioneer in AI-powered workforce management, announced LaborSafe, a new schedule-aware integration between their technologies that will enable Concrete customers to embrace a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach for hourly workers, without fear of labor law contravention.
“Our work with Concrete gives our customers a seamless experience for planning labor and empowering employees with schedule flexibility and modern communications, without worrying about compliance issues.”
“As retailers know, achieving optimal field team performance in stores relies on great communication, process and visibility, but empowering individual hourly workers with modern communications has always been a sticking point, due to compliance concerns,” said Tristan Rogers, founder and CEO of Concrete. “This new initiative with Legion solves the problem by enabling our customers to establish a personal connection with every store worker – which is key to their engagement and performance – while also labor law compliant. In addition, retailers will save on dedicated hardware costs at store level for their field teams.”
The LaborSafe initiative will enable Concrete customers to control use of the Concrete Field Worker Engagement app on field teams’ personal phones, ensuring that ‘work’ systems and tools can only be accessed when an employee is on location and on shift. Off shift, the app will still allow employees to communicate with the business and receive important updates when they need them by leveraging Legion’s knowledge of employees’ schedules and clocks in real time.
The Legion WFM platform helps enterprises with AI-powered workforce management (WFM) that optimizes labor efficiency and enhances the employee experience simultaneously – at scale. It enables them to plan with long term budgeting and automated demand forecasting, execute more effectively with optimized labor plans and automated scheduling, and empower employees with schedules that better match employees’ preferences, gig-like flexibility, and modern digital tools. Through the Legion WFM mobile app, employees can share scheduling preferences, view upcoming shifts, swap shifts, and more. These benefits are crucial for employee retention and engagement.
“Optimizing labor while simultaneously enabling better experiences for the frontline workforce through the Legion Workforce Management platform is a strategic priority for Legion,” said Sanish Mondkar, founder and CEO of Legion Technologies. “Our work with Concrete gives our customers a seamless experience for planning labor and empowering employees with schedule flexibility and modern communications, without worrying about compliance issues.”
