STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), one of the world’s leading technology research and advisory firms, has launched a research study examining workplace services and solutions providers that help companies attract and retain their employees.
The results of the study will be published in a comprehensive ISG Provider Lens™ report, titled Future of Work – Services and Solutions 2022, scheduled for release in September.

After two years of disruption during the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses have recognized that the workplace of the past is gone for good. Many employees expect to be able to work from anywhere, while others have left the workforce altogether. ISG predicts that the future of work will be hybrid and will integrate three types of workplaces: the Digital Workplace, or underlying technology; the physical workplace, which may be an office, home or remote site; and the human work environment, including methods, processes and culture.
“The pandemic has shrunk the labor pool and changed worker expectations in many industries,” said Jan Erik Aase, Partner and Global Leader, ISG Provider Lens Research. “This makes it more important than ever for competitive companies to provide a stimulating, engaging and empathetic work environment. A laptop and a helpline are not enough.
ISG has distributed surveys to more than 150 workplace service and solution providers. Working in conjunction with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce seven quadrants representing the digital workspace services and products the typical business purchases, based on ISG’s experience in conjunction with his clients. The seven quadrants to cover are:
- Workplace Strategy Transformation Servicesevaluating consulting providers capable of formulating workplace strategies, designing post-pandemic workplace architectures, and helping clients develop roadmaps to achieve their transformation goals.
- Workplace Managed Services – End User Technology, Evaluate managed service providers for end-user technologies, including devices, applications, cloud workspaces, and security, which have traditionally been deployed and secured by enterprise IT departments.
- Digital Service Desk and Workplace Support Services, covering service providers that enable employees to work from anywhere, anytime, including automated, proactive help desk support and cloud platforms for provisioning always-on systems.
- Employee Experience Management ServicesEvaluate value-added service providers to enable technology in the workplace and improve end-user experience, linking employee experience to measurable business results.

They are now under pressure to modernize with reduced funds and staff. The report will be directed to state, local and non-governmental organizations, but not to the US federal government.
ISG analysts Mrinal Rai, Elaine Barth, Kevin Turner, Richard Marshall, Jochen Steudle, Craig Baty, Roman Pelzel, Phil Harpur, Sonam Chawla, Angie Kho and Keanu Ghrab will write the reports.
