Technology has changed the way we work. The workplace is no longer a physical location that we need to go to. Instead, companies now operate through digital workplace platforms which can be accessed from anywhere, as long as you have a laptop / tablet / mobile and an internet connection.
A digital workplace is the basic set of digital tools employees use to get work done. It can be anything from instant messaging to virtual meeting tools, enterprise social media tools, and even automated workflows.
It is easy to assume that your company has a digital workplace just because you use some components of it. But to truly gain benefits from a digital workplace platform and get measurable results, you need to implement it in its full form. That starts by understanding what a digital workplace really is and how it can help your organization deliver measurable business value.
