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.

How will the future of work affect business communicators?  This is just one of the questions that will be explored when Paul Miller, author of The Digital Workplace: How Technology is Liberating Work, talks to the IABC in New York on 22 May 2013.

Bob Libbey, New York IABC Chapter President and Head of Digital and Social Communications at Pfizer Inc. will interview Miller on themes including the future of work; how organizations that invest in the digital workplace help create a level playing field where all employees feel trusted, empowered and more equal; and the implications for employee communications. They’ll also address how organizations that stick to the “command and control” approach to work will fall behind.

“Technology is liberating work but how to communicate with and engage staff and contractors in a fragmented physical work world? Where does the organization end and the “extended organization” begin – who should communicators be including in their universe? What is left for the business communicator when CEOs can tweet and blog direct internally and externally? If you are 23-years-old and entering the industry, what skills and networks will really matter for you? Companies and skills are disappearing but new forms of success are being created right now.  ” says Miller.

The event, from 6.30-8.00pm on 22 May in Midtown, Manhattan, is unmissable for any communicator who deals with a workplace in transformation of communicating to those who do.

Attendance costs just $30 for IABC members and $50 for non-members including light refreshments.  Click for registration information.
