3 steps for promoting digital intelligence in the workplace

What is digital intelligence?

Examples of digital intelligence in the workplace

  • Integrating a remote or hybrid work strategy
    Organizations have much broader access to global talent through the cultivation of remote or hybrid work environments. This type of work structure necessitates a level of familiarity with navigating a digital workspace to keep interactions between colleagues, managers/direct reports, teams and the overall organization functional and efficient. 
  • Utilizing automation
    By now, most modern organizations leverage automation in some way to improve processes, decrease manual work and drive efficiency. Digitally intelligent individuals are those who embrace automation and recognize ways the technology can enhance their job performance.  

How to foster digital intelligence at work

Understand the qualities of a digital mindset

  • Offering resources and educational opportunities for upskilling and reskilling that make learning about new digital solutions possible. 
  • Integrating digital transformation into company culture by emphasizing the value of innovation and technological advancement.
  • Encouraging a data-driven approach to business operations. The digital age affords access to countless data sources that were previously unavailable or only acquired through manual operations.
