The realm of employee experience and the digital workplace has been in a constant state of growth and change for more than a decade. The evolution of the space has been exciting to watch, but it’s also been challenging to keep up with all the changing technology needs, especially during the ongoing pandemic.
Thankfully, having access to reliable, practical guidance and advice has made it possible for organizations, tech providers and practitioners to work together to improve and reimagine the way we work, both today and in the future.
In the spirit of this need for ongoing education and collaboration, Workgrid is proud to announce that we have been selected as the Digital Workplace Group’s inaugural DWG Institute Partner. This is an exclusive honor, given DWG’s diligence in only engaging in trusted relationships, and we look forward to the benefits our partnership will yield for DWG members and customers alike.
We are excited about this partnership for several reasons. For one, it gives us the opportunity to participate in an ongoing, open dialogue with DWG members and their wider practitioner audience as they help us to understand the needs of today's leading organizations. We are also looking forward to leveraging DWG's extensive knowledge and history within the digital workplace. This will enable us to continue to deliver award-winning digital workplace solutions that provide the features and functionalities organizations need for long-term business success.
