We’re moving towards a much more cohesive approach between different parts of our organization, marrying up our digital workplace with our physical workspace. So I see ownership as the digital workplace as being a joint effort between our IT, corporate communication and digital communication teams. The dream is that we all work together to deliver as best an employee experience as possible!  – Jacqui RandleScottish Government

 

Yes; new departments will be in charge of digital workspace experience –  Morten DalPANDORA

 

The digital workplace will become increasingly strategic to organizations. It’s an infrastructure for digital transformation since as it enables new (digital) ways of working together and plays a key role in attracting and retaining talent. Organizations that realize and act on this insight will most likely make the appropriate changes to the ownership. It will not be owned by the IT department or a separate business function – Oscar Berg, Unicorn Titans

No, but the need for collaboration between the communications department and IT will increase if we are to make use of all the tools and features in Office 365 that are and will be available – Rikard SpålséusSwedish Match

 

There are signs of organisations taking experience more seriously. This could lead to brand and HR taking a greater interest in intranet and digital workplace than they have previously – Sharon O’DeaLithos Partners

 

 Good question. Internal Comms used to be quite active on the intranet, I believe they should take more responsibility for the Digital Workplace – Steffen Henke,Vodafone Germany
