Best Digital Workspace
Due to COVID-19, 2020 is proving to be a challenging year for many practices. Architecture, traditionally an industry which values face-to-face collaboration, has been forced to adapt to remote working. This category celebrates some of the ways in which practices have maintained human connection during lockdown and will award the practice which rose to the challenge and maintained a positive and inclusive work culture.
Please note, you can only enter Best Digital Workplace if you have entered another award.
