Invest 10 minutes and see how your digital work environment stacks up!

This quick, confidential diagnostic is based on the Digital Workplace Group (DWG) much broader benchmarking model. It should take you about 10 minutes to complete. Please make sure you respond to every statement. Once you've submitted your responses, your scores will be analysed and compared with our extensive benchmarking dataset. You'll receive your results via email within a few business days. You can take your resulting documentation back to your team for stakeholder conversations. Use it as a digital workplace project start point! 

Your responses and results are confidential and will NOT be shared with anyone else.

NOTE: This is not a substitute for the full Digital Workplace Maturity Benchmark - but is a ‘taster’. Over the past 17 years, hundreds of major organizations have had their digital workplaces fully benchmarked by DWG. Through more than 700 benchmarks, DWG has worked with well-known companies and public institutions such as IKEA, KPMG, Microsoft, The Coca-Cola Company and Scottish Government. DWG has provided impartial, detailed baseline positions on digital workplace performance, measurements, assessments -- supplemented with specific recommendations for improvement.
