During 2020 we expect several digital workplace trends to take centre stage. Here’s our view of ten of the most important.
In 2020 a key strategic focus for many businesses and organisations will be to successfully roll-out an effective digital workplace, increasing u ser adoption and driving an overall excellent digital employee experience.
Organisations now recognise the need to craft a consistent, user-centred and personalized experience of workplace technology that helps employees with their working day while also meeting wider organisational objectives, especially around efficiency and user-engagement.
The potential provided by tools like Microsoft Teams and solutions that support a more compelling experience overall, present significant opportunities for those leading digital workplace initiatives for them to make a real difference. But the complexity and noise of fragmented digital landscapes and the overwhelming number of tools and applications in use means there are challenges. Meanwhile highly diverse workforces with different needs and preferences now expect an experience that is relevant to them.

It aims to provide digital workplace leaders with recommendations and talking points to help them plan for 2020 and be in a better position to seize the opportunities and navigate the challenges.
