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.

Are you charged with delivering a social platform to employees?  Are you looking for insights into the types of interventions that enable social intranets to deliver real value? Then participate in our new survey. All participants get a summary of results and are entered into a prize draw to win a 3 month subscription to IBF Live!

Woman ticking one of selection of boxesGetting value out of social platforms is not straightforward. For every social intranet success story, there’s another one where performance has been underwhelming and “ROI” remains a rather fuzzy concept somewhere on the horizon.

There are some common themes which are often associated with successful implementations. These include senior management support and the ability to embed social tools in key processes. However, nobody yet has quite defined the “special sauce” which makes a social intranet really take off.

10-minute survey about social intranets

That’s why the Digital Workplace Group is undertaking research to take a fresh and independent look at the best way to get value out of a social intranet. As part of this project we’re conducting a confidential survey and we’d love to hear your views and experiences with your social intranet. The survey should take about ten minutes to complete.

A chance to win, but insights are guaranteed

All participants will get a copy of the results and will also be entered into a draw for a three-month subscription to IBF Live, our monthly show dedicated to intranets featuring live tours of leading-edge intranets. You also get access to a huge archive of intranet and digital workplace live tours.

All responses are confidential.  For more details please visit our privacy statement
