Jacob Morgan, futurist, best-selling author, and speaker, at ICE ’17 discusses the Employee Experience and how digital transformation is a contributing factor towards enhancing employee engagement.
Citing examples from over 252 companies Jacob Morgan talks about how the unintended consequence of employee engagement is the viewpoint that it is a perk. He proposes in this clip that rather than looking at engagement as a short term benefit but more of a core workplace experience evolution through culture, technology, and physical environment companies can truly shape and enhance their employee experience […]

Either way, you’ve likely read and heard a lot about the benefits of digital transformation. You’ve probably also figured out that it’s a complex undertaking that doesn’t happen overnight.

The following blog post was authored by Ed Keegan, Sr. Director, Strategic Alliances at Achievers
Employee engagement has matured beyond the “trendy corporate buzzword” phase and is now widely acknowledged as integral to the success of any company looking to establish or maintain its place in an increasingly competitive job market. One of the most important factors in establishing and maintaining high levels of employee engagement is work culture.
Culture not only refers to the nature and quality of your company’s internal work environment; it is also the defining factor in […]

As we enter the era of the digital workplace, many companies are realizing the need to make the most of their existing technology investments. Over the years, tools and systems have accumulated and it’s becoming almost impossible to know the background or purpose of any one solution.
The issue is that they purchased a solution to solve a problem, but it never ended up solving the problem. For a number of reasons: the problem changed, implementation took too long, the problem became […]

The evolution to a digital workplace brings with it an urgent need for companies to understand what data exists and where it’s all kept. Any efforts to do this can be complicated by the sheer amount of apps and tools that an organization has implemented to keep up with the pace of work – be it enterprise-wide, at the team level, or more increasingly, by individual employees.
Every department within an organization has their own operational systems: ERPs for financial data, CRMs […]

People no longer stay at companies for life. They want to work where they have freedom to use their preferred apps, tools, and devices, and in an environment that allows them to work on their own terms, inside or outside of the office, and with flexible hours that fit their busy personal lives.
In this age of the empowered employee, it’s important for companies to create and nurture a culture of recognition that inspires employees to devote their time, skills, and brain […]

Mobile is an important part of our lives, and nowhere is this more evident than our workday. We routinely use mobile to communicate, collaborate, and get work done. But we’re moving on from email. We’re moving away from cramming everything in our inbox and then trying to find it later. Trying to organize in folders, sending links to ourselves – these are habits of the inbox that are destined for the trash bin.
Mobility has become a key business enabler in connected, […]

We’re celebrating Community Manager Appreciation Day (CMAD) for the second year in a row, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than to appreciate a few of our own.
A community can’t thrive without someone to light the fire underneath it and keep it burning, every single day. It’s an intricate and tireless job, but someone’s gotta do it. But, we bet if you ask any community manager, they don’t see it as burden. They see it as a huge opportunity […]

Igloo is celebrating Community Manager Appreciation Day (CMAD) on January 25. It’s a special occasion to celebrate the ones who work tirelessly writing stories, connecting people, and finding creative ways to share information.
We didn’t want to let this special day pass without giving some extra love to our partners in communication, so we created a CMAD microsite packed with goodies for community managers, including a manifesto desktop wallpaper, and a fortune teller activity.

For the second consecutive time, Igloo was named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Enterprise Social Networks.
We are in the IDC MarketScape report for a second time, in the “Major Players” category. No pressure, you know? So what if some players out there have support teams as big as our whole company? This is about doing it right, and we pride ourselves on that. That obviously got noticed, since we ranked number 1 in customer experience in this report. Again.
