Solutions for the Retirement Impact in Field Service Management

  • April 8, 2022
  • The Youreka Team

A direct and potentially negative impact for field service management organizations is the rapid increase of valuable knowledge and skills departing with retirees. “As of the third quarter of 2021, 50.3% of U.S. adults 55 and older said they were out of the labor force due to retirement, according to a Pew Research Center analysis.” This leaves less experienced field reps aiming to deliver service excellence in a time when customer experience is critical to success.

The value of service excellence and optimal customer experiences is validated further in Gartner’s 2021 Critical Capabilities for Field Service Management (FSM) report.

“Field service providers’ customers (“end customers” or “equipment operators”) have also changed. Customers now expect real-time communication about arrival times, resolutions and diagnostic discoveries, as well as visual evidence of work completion. FSPs are also increasingly connecting various teams to multiple human and even non-human workforces that cross organizational boundaries and technologies.“
