Thanks for visiting the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) website. You'll see this post may refer to the "Intranet Benchmarking Forum (IBF)," the "Digital Workplace Forum (DWF)" or "IBF Live." But that doesn't match our website name!
In a nutshell, we merged IBF and DWF into one service and changed our name to "Digital Workplace Group." The new name represents the broader set of services we've grown to offer, beyond an original focus on just intranets. We also changed the name of our monthly webinar from "IBF Live" to "Digital Workplace Live."
Although we've relabelled things, we're proud of our decade+ history and have left this page intact. Enjoy your time on our site and please contact us with any questions or comments.
The iPad continues to make its mark in the digital workplace, this time with new ways to engage employees in benefits programmes. In its article, iPad engagement boosts benefits uptake, the Workplace Savings and Benefits website reports on an innovation from benefits provider Personal Group. The company has devised an interactive presentation running on the Apple device to help employees understand their benefits programme and tailor it to their needs. One client organization has reported an increase in employee uptake for its programme from 15% to 50%.
DWG Founder and CEO Paul Miller comments in the article that interaction is becoming essential to raising employee engagement. “Now communicating one-way isn’t enough. You have to enable people to comment, to post questions, to rate things.”
