Organisations are having to work ever faster to keep up with the pressures of an uncertain world. Internally, new technologies and ways of working are transforming how firms operate.
Increasingly, organisations are moving from a collection of free-standing ‘silos’ (such as intranets, document management, ERP, CRM) to a more coordinated digital workplace. But what does this look like in practice? We can help you create a concrete vision, and chart a course towards it.
The digital workplace consists of the holistic set of tools, platforms and environments for work, delivered in a coherent, usable and productive way.
But the digital workplace is easy to define … it’s journey that we should all be focusing on.
The changing nature of the modern workplace is presenting both challenges and opportunities:
- new technologies, such as social tools, are allowing staff to connect and collaborate
- information flows go from top-down, to two-way
- mobile devices are changing how we want to work
- senior management is driving change at an ever-greater pace
- untangling legacy systems and silos is hard
- without a common vision, projects are heading in many different directions
How we can help
We can help you get moving towards the digital workplace, by providing both inspiration and practical steps to take. This includes:
- Presenting a vision for the digital workplace, outlining the opportunities and possibilities, including real-world examples of what’s already been done.
- Creating a shared vision for your organisation, bringing stakeholders together to align needs and plans.
- Researching staff needs and opportunities, using practical research techniques to determine key needs and points of pain.
- Developing a DW strategy, outlining a pragmatic approach and roadmap for delivering on the digital workplace vision.
- Creating a plan for enterprise mobility, a key element of the digital workplace.

What our clients say
Step Two recently developed a new information architecture as part of our major intranet refresh. They engaged heavily with our staff in order to understand our needs. Their professional advice and recommendations were excellent, and the project was delivered on time, and on budget. We are very satisfied with the project outcomes and the service received from Step Two.

As a one person intranet team, I personally have found Rebecca’s support, mentoring and guidance invaluable. Her broad experience with all things intranet, coupled with her experience in working with many different companies and cultures lends itself to anyone who needs first-class advice and assistance. Rebecca also runs web writing workshops for our staff – many of whom have responded well to Rebecca and her style of teaching and sharing knowledge. I highly recommend working with Rebecca and the team at Step Two. Your project, your intranet and your professional development will be so much better for it!
