This blog will explore the top 5 reasons why attending Gartner’s Digital Workplace Summit is a non-negotiable for anyone looking to keep their finger on the pulse of innovation. Exploring the wealth of offerings available to industry professionals, providing invaluable insights on how to elevate your organization and transform your workforce into a modern powerhouse of innovation. 

Gartner Digital Workplace Summit


  1. Stay up-to-date on the latest workplace trends

The Gartner conference is specifically designed to keep you abreast of the latest trends and technologies in digital workplace strategies. The conference will be centered on the convergence of talent and technology, commonly known as workforce digital dexterity, and will delve into the distribution of work in the digital workplace. You’ll gain valuable insights into how these strategies and technologies impact the digital employee experience, and learn how to leverage them to build a more engaging, productive, and satisfying work environment for your team.

    • Learn how work is distributed in the modern organization
      Distributed work is a way of working that allows for flexibility in terms of when, where, how, and who does the work. This means that teams can be formed and disbanded as needed, and small teams can also work together consistently over time.

      To make this possible, digital channels and a variety of productivity applications (known as the “new work hub”) are used. These tools allow for communication and collaboration among team members, even if they are not physically located in the same place.

    • Learn the value of strong Digital Employee Experience (DEX)
      The move towards a hybrid work environment has made DEX more important than ever. However, improving the employee experience is not an easy task. To achieve better DEX, organizations should shift their focus from just thinking about end users to thinking like end users themselves.

      Many organizations support multiple digital workplace technologies that are crucial for providing a better employee experience. Despite this, a majority of employees report having to put in extra effort to use these technologies. Only a small percentage of employees feel that the technologies provided by IT make their work easier. Improving DEX can lead to increased employee engagement, improved job satisfaction, and more efficient use of technology at work.
