Competitive organizations increasingly are recognizing the importance of having a platform for two-way communications, rather than simply sharing corporate information. Ensuring that real-time, two-way digital conversations can take place is a significant part of creating a positive digital experience for employees.
Challenges of Creating a Positive DEX
There are a number of obstacles that companies must address in order to leverage the full power of a connected digital workplace. These include:
- Failure to prioritize DEX
- Inability to embrace new technologies
- Customer-only focus
- No clear vision/plan for DEX implementation
Companies can create a strong, connective DEX for all of their employees, including deskless employees who don’t necessarily have the luxury of having access to corporate systems such as intranets and email.
