HR – Your role in creating a digital workplace

“The Digital Workplace is the freedom to work as individuals and teams anytime, anyway, anywhere”
-Earl Talbot NTT Europe

Demands for increased freedom at work come not just from millennials but from the entire workforce. With this freedom comes enterprise wide benefits such as increased productivity, with 40% of remote workers putting in extra hours, and higher employee retention, with 25% of employee satisfaction attributed to the working environment. This means embarking on the heroic journey to the Digital Workplace, a promised land where employees are truly engaged and businesses truly agile.

At the heart of this journey are the new power couple, the new Bill and Melinda Gates, the new Beyonce and Jay Z, the new Kardashians (perhaps not!) – HR and IT.

This SlideShare explores HR’s role in creating a Digital Workplace; partnering with allies to drive a high-performing culture and bring measurable business benefits to their organisation.

As Microsoft’s Sophie Allen said, “HR will care about the Digital Workplace because they care about flexible working, supporting a diverse workforce, and retaining talent.”
