At DWG we’re very proud of our research programme. In more than a decade of data-gathering analysis and documenting leading practices, we’ve delivered over 70 detailed reports on intranets, digital workplaces and digital transformation. In fact, our members have told us this is one of the most valued aspects of membership.  

However, not all of our research is exclusive to the DWG membership; we occasionally share our latest thinking or insights with our wider community. One such element is the output from our annual survey of member and non-member intranets and digital workplaces. This provides an incredibly valuable snapshot for those participating in the survey of where everybody is on their intranet and digital workplace journeys.

Take our 15-minute survey

Your 15-minute investment of time will give you exclusive access to the overview results and analysis. These can help bolster a senior management presentation, business case or discussions with senior stakeholders. Your organization’s individual data will be kept private and only referenced as part of the aggregate results.

The survey covers themes such as which technology is used, the state of mobile intranets, strategic priorities, digital workplace programmes, and more.

Of course, survey replies aren’t the same as benchmarking or in-depth research, but they do provide valuable statistics and insights. These can help bolster a senior management presentation or business case, or seed discussions with stakeholders.

Insights from last year

Here are a few snippets from last year’s survey:

  • 84% of all intranets are owned or co-owned by the communications function, but only 30% own the “digital workplace”.
  • On average, 88% of the workforce can access the intranet, similar to the previous year.
  • 57% of intranets show different views or content based on a user’s profile.
  • Only 14% of organizations provide no mobile access to the intranet.
  • 30% of organizations have a formal digital workplace initiative or function.
  • Defining a digital workplace strategy or roadmap was the most popular strategic objective for teams for the coming year.

A few key people have asked us to extend the deadline, due to year end deliverables. Please note that the extended deadline to complete the survey is now January 10, 2018.

We look forward to hearing about your intranet and digital workplace, and sharing the results with survey participants.
