7 ways to create a great digital workplace experience
Have you worked somewhere with an amazing company culture and employee experience? Ever wondered how to recreate it? We uncover 7 ways to create a great digital workplace experience in your organization. Read our top tips on how to build a happy work culture within your workplace.
Why does work ‘culture’ matter?
A distinct workplace culture is a major component in creating a happy workplace, says research by Deloitte. In fact, of those surveyed 94% of executives and 88% of employees believe it’s vital to a business’ success. The report also found a solid link between happy and valued employees and a strong work culture.
An article by Carolyn Dewar on the McKinsey blog uncovers four reasons why work ‘culture’ matters so much:
Culture correlates with performance
Culture is inherently difficult to copy
Healthy cultures enable organizations to adapt
Unhealthy cultures lead to under-performance, or worse
If a great culture motivates employees to do their best, and builds a stronger, more dynamic workforce, what are the driving factors that create it?
The Valo philosophy
Valo’s Business Lead in North America, Juha Koivula, says the elements of a great workplace experience are about collaboration and branding:
Collaboration – People need quick access to information, workspaces and groups, as well as fast access to what they’re working on, especially in larger companies. This is one of the problems we seek to solve with our product Valo Teamwork.
Branding – Creating a feeling of ‘home’ in the digital workspace is also important. Traditionally, IT would set the intranet as the homepage, almost forcing people to engage with it. At Valo, we believe there should be an incentive for people to WANT to access the intranet. This is why we include useful features, for example, such as a people finder, to help colleagues find each other faster; or personal bookmarking, where employees can store all the files and information they need in one place, as standard within our Valo Intranet product.
Valo has responded to these trends by designing effective digital workplace tools that make our customers’ working lives easier. Our solutions remove repetitive daily tasks, which frees up staff, giving them time to innovate.
Is a smart digital workplace the key to great company culture? We think so, and we’ve got you covered, with all the tools you need to forge ahead.

When we first heard about modern SharePoint I was amazed at how mature it already was. With the ability to use it side-by-side with classic SharePoint, and the additions that modern Valo Intranet brings on top of it, I am sure this is the last intranet we’ll ever need.
