Workshop A: Creating a Modern People-Centric Workplace by Harnessing the Power of Office 365 - led by MICROSOFT
The workplace is transforming - from changing employee expectations to more diverse and globally distributed teams to disruptive marketplace competitors. Creating a modern people-centric workplace requires breaking down silos and forming stronger partnerships than ever before between marketing, IT, HR, and every other department.

In this visionary demo see how leaders are leveraging the power of Microsoft Office 365 as a catalyst for this change, evolving how you think about communication, knowledge, relationships, and technology in your organization.

You’ll see how different personas from road warriors, to executives, to corporate staff are using Microsoft Teams, Office 365 Groups, Yammer, SharePoint, Planner, Outlook and more to communicate better, share knowledge, and transform into agile, disruptive and empowered businesses.
Leave this session with a vision, and specific ideas, for more fully leveraging your investment in Office 365, but also how to:

  • Break down Office 365 to get the most out of the investment
  • Use Office 365 as a communication tool
  • Build internal and external relationships via Office 365 tools

Workshop B: Planning for Transformation: Building a Digital Workplace Roadmap - led by C5 INSIGHT
Digital workplace projects promise to transform companies from tired legacy thinking into teams of engaged employees that disrupt their competitors.
But, let's be honest, these projects have a way of getting off track.  In fact, 60-80% of digital workplace projects fail. Two of the most frequently sited reasons: not understanding the unique planning process, and no plan for change management.  

This session will dive into what should be included in your digital workplace roadmap, how to build it, and what to consider leaving out.  You'll go beyond technology and into changing how your business thinks about people.  

Participate in group exercises that you can bring back to your team including a deeper knowledge of how to:
  • Build a business case and ROI
  • Discover why people and process are more important than the technology
  • Engage a leadership team - and keep them engaged
  • Understand the role of change management, journey mapping and governance in transforming your business
  • Get a digital workplace roadmap workbook for free

Workshop C: Humanizing the Digital Workplace with O365: Reinforcing Culture, Tapping into the Power of Employees, & Encouraging Continuous Improvement - led by ROGUE SERVICES & SOLUTIONS
Globalization and the free market have created opportunities for corporations to expand their footprints. Multiple locations, a more dispersed workforce, and time-zone conflicts are symptoms of growth with consequences such as disconnectedness and siloed teams. It is time to leverage your intranet as a strategic communications tool—not just for “push” messaging,” but for humanizing the increasingly digital workplace.
This workshop will include both individual and group break-out exercises as you learn how to use your intranet/the Office 365 toolset to reinforce corporate culture and values from a team member’s first day on through their tenure, including:
  • Learning how the onboarding process can be digitized in a meaningful way
  • Discovering the value of vlogs for sharing, training, and encouraging continuous improvement
  • Tapping into the power of employee engagement and peer leadership through virtual committees

A more personal virtual office experience results in a deeper commitment to an organization and its mission, which shows in tighter teamwork, reduced turnover, and retained institutional knowledge. Join us as we explore opportunities for inspiration, information, and engagement with a more human intranet experience.
