Digital Workplace V Digital Workspace

I was recently asked internally to explain why we choose 'Workspace' and not 'Workplace' when describing Invotra.

We did think a lot about this at the time and we did have differing internal views on the topic initially.  We settled on Workspace as we felt it more accurately describes the more ubiquitous nature of where people work.

Invotra: Leading the Digital Workspace Evolution

The change from intranets to social intranets took a relatively long time.  When you consider that intranets had been around, in their most raw form, since the early 1990’s it took until 2010 for the social networking craze to impact on business.  Yes, there had been some minor tinkering with proprietary systems allowing people to communicate before 2010, but it was then that businesses started to take the concept seriously.

The SaaS Digital Workspace - Commercially Transparent

When we were putting together our offering we wanted the commercials to reflect the product.  

Invotra is built on open source (Drupal, Piwik, Solr, Node.js).  The open source community relies on it’s members to provide support and guidance to each other.  Code is created and then submitted back into the community for anyone to use, for free.  It’s a fair community where contribution is encouraged and collaboration is key.  Everything is open and transparent.

Invotra scores a hat trick at the Employee Engagement Awards

The Employee Engagement Awards (EEA) are about ‘recognising the forward thinking businesses that strive to do things differently and put their workforce at the heart of its operation’.

We’re very pleased to say that we have three finalists places.  We beat tough competition from major brands and enterprise organisations to be shortlisted.

10 tips to improve your Digital Workspace adoption

Whether you’re replacing your existing Digital Workspace or implementing one for the first time, it’s a big project that requires commitment from your team.  

There are, of course, fundamental reasons for implementing an internal collaboration and publishing platform:

  • fragmented workforce with part time and home workers being more commonplace now in most organisations

  • lack of control and trying to keep up with the changes in the organisation and accommodating a new company culture

Workplace Leadership

Are you completely comfortably with calling yourself a leader?

I've asked that question many times before and most of the time the majority of people say that they aren't.  I believe we have made leadership into something bigger than us, we have made it into something beyond us, we have made it about changing the world.  

We’ve taken this title of leader and we treat it as something that one day we are going to deserve, but to give it to ourselves now would require a level of cockiness or arrogance that we're not comfortable with.
