“If I pick up on Digital Workplace Team of the Year, this is an evolution from our Digital Workplace Leader of the Year award, because all the Leader winners would say ‘Well, it's all about my team’. And so we decided to shift the focus a little.”

- Elizabeth Marsh, DWG Director of Research

That red carpet moment is nearly upon us as the Digital Workplace of the Year Awards team prepares for another season of sparkling entries.

In this episode of Digital Workplace Impact, host and DWG’s Chief Executive Officer, Nancy Goebel, meets with two of the behind-the-scenes heroes who team up to deliver DWG’s Awards, and hears more about all that goes into celebrating and learning from the industry’s best of the best.
