Digital Employees White Paper

CGI, parent company of ALN Patron Member, CGI Federal, published a highly readable White Paper on the very current issues of Digital Employees. While the pandemic has made us all aware of the potential of a digital workforce, there is not always a full understanding of how to address the many issues that come with this new way of working. With sections titled “Adapting to Digital Age Workforce Expectations,” “Strengthening the frontline to create an amazing customer experience” and, “Creating a collaborative work environment”, the White Paper provides a structure for managing the intangible asset of employee contributions to mission success.
