Supported by Microsoft, EY Modern Workforce helps to unlock workforce productivity, accelerate organizational change, help empower seamless virtual team collaboration, and make the most efficient use of talent.

Are you looking to redefine your digital strategy?

If the answer is yes, digital workplace modernization and employee engagement becomes even more critical to your success in the market. The way people work is evolving at lightning speed, with distributed teams, brand-new business models, and complex security issues. In workplaces worldwide, employees need the right digital tools to connect with and support each other, wherever they are, to encourage productivity, engagement and collaboration. A new set of competencies is required to be able to constantly learn and adapt to the new ways of working.

Remote working can support internal and external collaboration and assist your organization in modernizing the workplace. It can also help increase enterprise preparedness against foreseeable and unforeseeable crisis management incidents. Microsoft 365 brings together the best of Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility and Security.

The EY Modern Workplace services are supported by Microsoft technologies to provide a sustainable, integrated and secure offering for collaboration, giving your organization a competitive advantage during volatile times. EY and Microsoft help clients realize the full impact of digital across the Office 365 program as you continue to work with Microsoft as a strategic technology partner.
