Guest speaking and cooking with Masgroves

In July, co-founder, Caroline Watkin spoke at Masgroves panel event with a difference. Her challenge was to talk ‘Is Digital Killing Communications’ whilst cooking kedgeree in the style of TV’s Saturday Kitchen!

Caroline led with the perspective that actually, companies will be killed if they don’t fully embrace the latest digital tools in the workplace.

She also argued that companies should simplify all things digital things for their employees.

According to a recent report, an average enterprise uses 461 disparate apps – with each functional group relying on specialized functional apps designed to serve them better.*

No wonder employees are confused!

The impact of poor technology on employee engagement is well documented. 42% of Millennials believe employers should always adopt the latest tech and 53% say they are more likely to accept a job offer if their employer uses the same consumer-based tech they use in everyday life – according to Robert Walters research.

As a Workplace by Facebook partner, Caroline talked about the role Workplace can play in streamlining communications and the employee experience. Providing one place for employees to access all their tools, collaborate in workgroups and hear the latest news from the CEO. Creating that essential community needed to connect your people to your purpose which is at the heart of an engaged workforce.
