The digital workplace is the concept that there is a virtual equivalent to the physical workplace, and that this needs to be planned and managed coherently because it is fundamental to people’s productivity, engagement and working health.
Definition of digital workplace
This is not a precise definition: just as the notion of “workplace” itself has ill-defined boundaries, so the shape of a digital workplace will vary between organisations. Consider how we define the digital workplace in detail. However, at its heart it is about:
- Putting people first – the impact on employees is what makes the digital workplace important
- A technology layer – advances in technology are driving changes in the digital workplace, and this is what makes it a current issue.
- Management and design – proactively developing a digital workplace means addressing it as a whole and co-ordinating between technology, process and people aspects.
- Planning your Digital Workplace
