Event Details

Let’s face it: we don’t work like we used to.

Physical work environments are being replaced because we all want to work in the same way we live… digitally! From anywhere. On any device. So, as business communicators, how do we keep our mobile workforce informed and engaged? With so many modern internal communications tools, it can be hard to keep up. From intranet portals to collaboration solutions like Slack or Microsoft Teams and internal social media like Yammer to modern onboarding processes, we’re now working in an era of the “digital workplace.”

Join us on May 2 for an interactive conversation about transformational technology in today’s workplace. This digital workplace 101 will feature:

  • Best practices for improving your communications efforts with digital tools to better reach and engage internal audiences.
  • Case studies from local companies on how technology has helped to transform their workplaces.
  • The latest intranet and digital workplace trends and tips for success.
