West Lothian staff pledge Karen LawteIt’s simple really – if you want to invest in technology to improve your organisation you need to invest in your people, so they have the skills to use it.  Research shows that having good digital skills can also aid inclusion and well-being in the workplace and reduce staff turnover.  

But how do you support everyone who needs help, from the hospital worker and bin collector to the senior management team? How do you get them using a range of online tools from Slack and Yammer to email and Skype?

The answer? You train some of your staff as Digital Champions so they can cascade digital skills support across teams, departments and service areas.
