Employees expect to use modern tools that makes it easy to do their jobs, from anywhere, at any time, on any device. Enable powerful employee experiences with digital workplace solutions from BMC.
What is a Digital Workplace?
The emergence of the digital workplace has shifted enterprise culture to center on people. In fact, customer experience is set to overtake price and product as the key brand differentiator by 2020.
As digital natives enter the workforce, talent retention is also a critical issue. These workers expect to have access to the best tools—93% of millennials in a recent study cited modern and up-to-date technology as one of the most important aspects of a workplace.
Every stage, from onboarding to off boarding, should be imbued with transparency, empowerment, and ease of use. BMC Helix Digital Workplace provides intuitive and intelligent consumer-like experiences to help organizations step into the future of work easily and fearlessly.
