Inside track on the ‘Digital Workplace of the Year Awards’ 2018

“That’s what the future is all about – leveraging technology to get to that simplified employee experience, so someone can say: ‘Wow. This room knows who I am and all I did was walk in.’”

– Troy Campano, Liberty Mutual

In this episode of Digital Workplace Impact, Paul Miller catches up with the winners of the Digital Workplace of the Year Awards 2018. The awards celebrate exceptional digital workplaces and the practitioners who bring them to life  and the winners were announced in Chicago at the Digital Workplace Experience 2018 in June.

The competition was fierce, but from the many excellent entries, Liberty Mutual emerged as a clear and convincing winner of the Digital Workplace of the Year Award, as did the inspiring Aaron Kim, from Royal Bank of Canada, for the Digital Workplace Leader Award. Cisco was hot on their heels and was awarded runner-up in the Digital Workplace of the Year category.

Tune in and hear from Aaron Kim, Troy Campano from Liberty Mutual and Cisco’s Alan McGinty as they tell us what it’s like to be recognized in the awards, what makes for a winning digital workplace, their lessons learned along the way and their focus for the future.
