Reimagining digital workplace experience to drive productivity

Employers have invested in more digital ways of working, but there’s little evidence these technology solutions are moving the needle on workforce productivity. By redesigning the virtual and hybrid workplace with humans at the center, organizations can improve the worker experience and deliver real business results.

The future of workforce experience starts now

In today’s world, digital tools are used to connect the complete workforce in a hyperconnected world where workers may affect market performance as much as customers do.

To go from looking digital to living digital, the workplace must be redesigned to operate in synchrony and connect all workers to those that they work with when, where, and how they need it—regardless of location, device, or time zone. Making the shift requires connecting worker experience to business outcomes. By putting workers at the center of design, it becomes possible to create a digital workplace that transforms how people collaborate, get work done, and ultimately do business.

Deloitte brings together strategists, experience and product designers to help our clients transform their workforce experiences.

Productivity+ refers to the range of business outcomes that a modern digital workplace enables. These include productivity as well as innovation, inclusion, connection, collaboration, purpose, engagement, wellness, and beyond.
