Ask any random group of employees how they’d characterize their company’s intranet and chances are their responses will be less than enthusiastic. Usually, there are good reasons: The intranet is a confusing labyrinth where vital information seemingly goes to hide; it’s a drab top-down exercise in one-way announcements; or it’s a rarely-viewed, seldom-updated ghost town. In other words, it’s neither the best business tool nor the best representation of a digitally-empowered business. But why does it matter? It is the cornerstone of your digital workplace that consolidates your organizational information and connects your employees.
Red Level knows that a better digital workplace is not only possible, but it’s also easy to create and administer, provided companies take the right approach and use the right tools. On August 21, digital workplace architect and Microsoft MVP, Vlad Catrinescu will share “Three Pillars of a Great Digital Workplace Strategy” in a live webinar all HR, Marketing, and Corporate Communications professionals should attend.
As the title suggests, the focus will be on the three essential capabilities that distinguish productive, transformative intranet solutions from their less-successful counterparts. According to Catrinescu, a high-functioning digital workplace solution incorporates communication, collaboration, and innovation capabilities, providing easy and appealing ways for team members to become active, engaged participants. The session will also cover issues such as social media functionality, mobile optimization, and workspace lifecycle management.
Catrinescu cites the continuing trends towards an increasingly digitized and diffuse workforce and the need for companies to ensure effective knowledge-sharing throughout their organizations as the driving force for a high-functioning digital workplace. “Just having an intranet is not enough,” Catrinescu says. “Even if you have an intranet and can effectively communicate with your employees, you lose a lot of value without having the collaboration and innovation capabilities that are possible now.”
The digital workplace has emerged to satisfy the needs of the changing workforce dynamic with technology and tools that enable employees to communicate, collaborate and connect whenever and wherever they need. A user-centric digital workplace increases efficiency and effectiveness by letting employees access, share, and contribute information quickly and easily within an appealing and secure environment on any device.
Whether deploying a new digital workplace solution or modernizing an existing one, attendees can expect to learn how to build an effective, powerful digital workplace without the significant pitfalls – or enormous costs – normally associated with customized environments.
