Introducing the Comprehensive Analysis of Deskless Work: Q4 2023 Research Report


We are thrilled to present our latest research report, The State of Deskless Work: Q4 2023 Overcoming the Autonomy and Empowerment Barriers.

Deskless work, the backbone of many industries, is a complex and often underappreciated field. Surprisingly, deskless workers outnumber their desk-based counterparts by a ratio of four-to-one worldwide. With the majority of organizations expecting growth in their mobile workforce, understanding the dynamics of deskless work is crucial.

The current era is witnessing a remarkable shift towards worker empowerment. This is driven by factors such as competitive talent markets, a rising trend of skilled mobile workers adopting a "free agent" mindset, and the appeal of flexible employment through the gig economy. Consequently, the importance of retention and the cost of attrition for employers with mobile workers have reached an all-time high.

Our report sheds light on the present challenges and future opportunities. Many deskless workers today lack autonomy, struggle with complex work environments, and often feel neglected by leadership that prioritizes other investment areas.
