If the Digital Workplace concept is gradually becoming an accepted term, it’s still hard to sell the concept to senior management.
‘What is the financial value of investing in the digital workplace?‘, the new report issued by the Digital Workplace Forum , brings a new perspective on this issue, and provides new arguments to help you defend your business case for a Digital Workplace.
Through a lot of concrete examples and data, the report lists 6 non technical areas where evidence shows that the Digital Workplace can achieve results and is worth investing in:
1. Reduction of costs associated with office space thanks to the ability to work anywhere and on any device.
2. Improvements in the way people work while away from the office thanks to flexible work arrangements and not being disturbed by colleagues.
3. Increased staff engagement thanks to the availability of alternative ways of working that impact positively staff turnover. Happier employers are less likely to leave.
4. Business continuity guaranteed in case of a disaster.
5. Reduction in the environmental impact by reducing travel and commuting.
6. Reduction in absenteeism.
The report rightly argues that investments in a well implemented and integrated Digital Workplace is a prerequisite for starting to see these results.
Have you witnessed any of these results? or used these arguments to sell the Digital Workplace to your senior management?
