Our NNG Story: How to build an award-winning digital workspace


Join Erin Evans (Korn Ferry International – Senior Director, Strategy and Collective Intelligence) as she reveals what it takes to create an award-winning, business-critical digital workspace for communication, collaboration and knowledge.

About this webinar

User-experience research firm Nielsen Norman Group (NNG) has been analysing intranets from all over the world for 20 years, including trends and developments in the industry and best practices for intranet design. Across two decades, they have singled out the 10 best intranets of each year around the globe, recognising a total of 200 inspiring intranets and their creators who were pioneers in their winning year.

This year, Korn Ferry has won the prominent NNG Award for Best Intranet alongside ClearPeople. Co-winners also included the United Nations, Loblaw and other well-known brands, and we thought now might be a great time to share some of our learnings from deploying ever more capable digital workspace solutions on the Microsoft 365 platform as businesses all over the globe turn to remote working.
