Plug the digital skills divide with adoption and change management
Before COVID, reports cited that 22% of the UK population lacked the digital skills required for everyday life. Today, we face a skills gap that has been further highlighted by remote working requirements, with 5.9 million employees working from home unable to turn on a device.
This presents a huge opportunity for businesses to help bridge the digital divide by empowering all employees with the skills needed to boost productivity, and benefit the wider community. The challenge lies in identifying and understanding the skills gaps and defining the real impact of technology.

How We Work
We will get to know your organisation to understand what works, what doesn’t, what’s holding you back and what matters now and in the future. We will help you discover how you can improve compliance, security and prevent data loss.
We will help you understand the importance of good governance to a successful implementation. We will work with you to set up tools that measure what ‘success’ and ‘good’ looks like. And, with our support you’ll learn where your staff already are in relation to what they need to know, so you can put in place appropriate, measurable leaning opportunities.
We will help you create a culture of influence in your organisation that is sustainable, replicable and measurable. Such cultures can drive use of applications like OneDrive up to 80% of the organisation without the need for formal migration or training programmes.
We will help you establish the return on investment, share the success across your organisation and plan for the future.
