Stephen Wakeling to Speak on Workforce Communication and Employee Engagement at Kronos Works Conference

Phobio’s CEO to share the stage with MarketSource technology partners to discuss the mobilized millennial workforce and the expectations of technology integration

LAS VEGAS--()--Stephen Wakeling, CEO of Phobio, the company that created Rodio, will attend and speak at this year’s Kronos Works Conference. Wakeling is scheduled to present on Tuesday, November 6, during a session titled “The Scheduling, Messaging, and Engagement of the Millennial Workforce”.

The discussion will look at how the mobilized millennial workforce – the largest generation in the U.S. labor force – has specific expectations of how technology should work and how it should be integrated in their lives.

Rodio is an AI-powered workforce communication platform, designed to solve complex internal communications and employee engagement challenges. In August of this year, the company announced that MarketSource selected Rodio as a technology partner to help build its Representative Engagement Platform (REP) and to drive workforce communications, engagement, and execution across tens of thousands of retail locations.

“Rodio was created to tailor the shape of an organization,” says Wakeling, “so, when MarketSource approached us to work with them on their Workforce Dimension tool, we were thrilled. It’s our mission to make sure that company structures and employees are supported and informed – ethically and based on type of employment.”

Rodio provides MarketSource with a centralized workforce communication and collaboration system to deliver timely messages to front-line employees using iOS and Android devices. It enables MarketSource to educate and notify sales representatives on pertinent promotions and corporate updates; significantly improving their ability to positively impact the customer experience while also driving operational efficiencies.

A panel discussion featuring Wakeling will follow, which will focus in on how organizations can encourage engaged and productive millennial workforces.
