Delivering the digital workplace
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
When we started our intranet redevelopment journey we honestly didn’t know how we were going to get the project off the ground. The resources that Step Two made available on their website were extremely helpful but it was when Rebecca Rodgers called to see if she could help us, that our project really got going. Rebecca was instrumental in getting us on the right track with our planning. She skillfully got our novice team focused and united on the project goals by sharing her knowledge and experiences with us during workshops. Rebecca was able to impart her extensive knowledge to all of us in a way that gave us the confidence to push ahead and create an amazing intranet (on a very tight budget) that uniquely suited our organisation.

Our portal redevelopment project, completed in early 2021, was delivered successfully with staff providing positive feedback about the site’s freshness and ease of navigation. Page views of news stories and frequently requested documents have also significantly increased.
Step Two were a pleasure to work with and their real world examples of best practice intranet/ portal design helped our organisation deliver a solution that meets the needs of staff.
