The digital workplace has been growing in importance for many years. Digital transformation efforts, designed to provide employees with tools to enhance productivity, improve communication, and increase engagement, have been on the rise with organizations that understand the importance of delivering seamless, modern digital experiences in order to attract and retain top talent.
The digital workplace has become even more important as a result of the pandemic, however.
Starting with the sudden shift to remote work and now to the predominance of hybrid work models, the digital workplace is now often the only workplace employees have. Because of this, the digital workplace is important for:
Keeping employees informed and engaged
Providing workers with the tools they need to do their jobs
Fostering engagement across the org and especially with frontline and fully remote employees
Increasing productivity and enabling employees to work wherever and whenever it’s convenient for them
Facilitating collaboration and enabling relationship building
