Step Two has announced the Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards to help organisations establish and sustain modern digital workplaces.

The Intranet and Digital Workplace Awards are global awards that recognise outstanding contributions to the fields of intranets and digital workplaces. The awards uncover remarkable solutions that deliver business value, and then share them with the wider community. They also shine a light on the talented teams behind this work, and the agencies that have supported them.

They tackle the complexities of your digital workplace, developing pragmatic strategies, and designing intuitive and human-centred solutions.

Driven by deep domain knowledge and productive field research, they enable digital workplace teams and senior leaders to proceed with clarity and confidence. They help their client partners to achieve an engaged and efficient workforce who are supported by a great digital employee experience.

  • The same submission can be entered into more than one category.
  • you can enter as many times as you like. (Multiple entries can be useful for the judges when determining the overall Platinum Award for the year.)
