The meaning of frontline worker

Frontline workers, or individuals who work in deskless, hourly roles, constitute over 50% of the US workforce, operating in industries like logistics, manufacturing, hospitality, and retail. Due to limited access to technology and traditional talent acquisition strategies, they often remain invisible in the digital landscape.

The DNA of the frontline workforce

The key to reaching and retaining frontline talent lies in understanding the unique attributes of these employees. Beyond demographics, it involves recognizing their skill sets, backgrounds, and aspirations. Mateo elaborates on this crucial aspect, emphasizing the importance of going beyond surface-level job descriptions.
