Will we ever ‘go’ to work again?
While returning to an office may still be some time off for many, organizations are now thinking about how they can welcome people back in a safe and viable way. In this episode, Paul Miller speaks to Sam Fisher, who supports landlords, tenants and property management teams in how to strategically design holistic workplaces.
Follow this fascinating and encouraging conversation as Sam gives practical advice on how organizations can start to plan for a successful reopening and shares her perspective on the longer-term future.
Is this the era of the intelligent digital assistant?
Intelligent digital workplace assistants (IDAs) are a rapidly growing trend, with more and more organizations implementing them to help increase productivity and efficiency in the workforce.
In this episode, Paul Miller talks to Brett Caldon, CEO of Workgrid, and Kevin Olp, author of DWG’s report “The Intelligent Digital Workplace Assistant: An introduction for digital workplace teams”.
100 people and no offices – the new normal?
Digital Workplace Group (DWG) has no offices. There were offices in London and New York until seven years ago – but people didn’t seem to choose to work there very often, so they were closed. Today, there are about 100 people across Europe and North America, who work anywhere and everywhere for the organization. In this episode, Paul Miller interviews two of his colleagues about what it is like to work for DWG and to work remotely.
Together, they discuss the culture and how it differs from working elsewhere, what the challenges can be of working remotely, and what large corporates can learn from this small organization.
