DBS Bank recognized in Digital Workplace of the Year 2022 Awards 

September 29, 2022 by

While it was Fidelity Investments that took home the overall Digital Workplace of the Year award for 2022, the independent judging panel were keen to acknowledge DBS Bank for being at the ‘Cutting Edge’ of digital workplace practice. Following on from the bank’s wins in Modern Intranet of the Year 2021 and Digital Workplace of the Year 2020, this additional award marks out DBS as a true pioneer in the industry. 

Now in their sixth year, the awards are produced by DWG and celebrate organizations and practitioners that have excelled in creating well-executed, high-performing digital workplace environments. 

Commenting on the award during the live awards presentation, DWG’s Director of Research, Elizabeth Marsh, said: “DBS Bank are leaders in digital workplace and modern intranet practices, and the judges recognized these achievements in their 2020 and 2021 wins. I’m pleased to see further acknowledgement in 2022 for their ongoing work as pioneers in delivering an exceptional digital employee experience with this ‘Cutting Edge’ category award.” 

DBS Bank continues to drive forward its mature digital workplace based on the core principle of ‘Make Work Joyful’. Its employee-led, data-driven approach to reducing toil for employees and enabling them to do their best work has seen the launch of OneMobile experience as well further evolution of its award-winning DBS Brain and OneBot features.  

The powerful set of capabilities that make up the DBS Bank digital workplace is underpinned by ambitious and creative strategic vision, multilevel governance in which business and technology have an equal voice, as well as thoughtful and comprehensive user engagement. The passionate, future-oriented team behind the DBS Bank digital workplace have much to be proud of and this shows in the impressive impact they are delivering for the business – from productivity to engagement to sustainability.  

Linda Lee, Head of Future of Work at DBS Bank, and winner of Digital Workplace Leader of the Year 2021, commented on what it has meant for the team be recognized three years in a row in the Digital Workplace of the Year award programme: “We are honoured to be recognized for the third consecutive year by DWG.
