After having an insightful discussion with Douglas Green from Telecom Reseller, I am eager to share a few key takeaways from our conversation.

Did you know that a staggering 80% of the global workforce, which accounts for approximately 2.7 billion people, are frontline workers? 

These unsung heroes brave harsh conditions, from fixing power lines in freezing winters to constructing roads and driving the evolution of our infrastructure. However, it's disheartening to realize that the majority of advancements in our work environment primarily cater to the remaining 20% of the workforce, leaving the large majority overlooked.

Having started my career in the field, I witnessed firsthand the persisting issues that frontline workers face. Astonishingly, many of the problems encountered today are the same as those faced twenty years ago. This realization ignited a deep passion within me to bring innovation to the forefront of fieldwork.

Engaging the frontline workforce is crucial. It involves prioritizing their safety and facilitating their digital transformation. These dedicated individuals deserve increased visibility and recognition. In the past, the abundance of available resources made field workers dispensable and easily replaceable. However, in today's world, where there is a shortage of skilled personnel, this group requires our collective support.

Unfortunately, the benefits of technological advancements and progress have not been effectively reaching field workers. The status quo remains rooted in outdated practices. It's time for a change.

We must bridge the gap between the evolving landscape of technology and the needs of frontline workers. By empowering them with innovative solutions and equipping them with digital tools, we can enhance their efficiency, effectiveness, and overall work experience. It's high time that the frontline workforce receives the attention and resources they deserve.

Together, let's usher in a new era where field workers are valued, where their contributions are acknowledged, and where digital transformation serves as a catalyst for their success. It's time to leave the old-school practices behind and embrace a future where frontline workers are at the forefront of innovation.

At Zinier, we are on a mission to not only bring innovation to the field, but also to ensure that telecom companies fulfill their responsibility of providing connectivity across the United States. We strongly believe in the importance of energy efficiency for all, recognizing that it is a necessity in today's world. 

As infrastructure plays a vital role in economic growth, we emphasize the significance of sustainability. We call upon everyone to incorporate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles into their business models, as it is our collective responsibility to leave the planet in a better state than we inherited. Together, we can build a brighter and more sustainable future for generations to come.
