Digital Workplace Maturity Benchmark

Our Digital Workplace Maturity Benchmark helps an organisation understand how its overall digital workplace is functioning in order to develop a vision of where it should be in future.

The evaluation relies on the Digital Workplace Map™, a seven-point framework that spans the core functions of a digital workplace, which cut across specific technologies and departments.

In 2012, we developed the Digital Workplace Map™. With input from past and present DWG members such as Microsoft, IBM, KPMG, ADP, McGraw-Hill, Citi, Johnson & Johnson and Fujitsu, we developed an industry first: a seven-point framework to map and measure the performance of an organisation’s digital workplace.

The map can be used to assess an entire organization or a specific unit, region or organizational function.
