2016 Workiva Sustainability Report

How We Used Wdesk to Create Our Sustainability Report

The Workiva Sustainability Report was created with Wdesk.

We started by using our integrated workbook and data collection templates to track and gather data from multiple sources. This was especially helpful in collecting and analyzing energy use and waste on a daily basis.

A Wdesk word-processing document was then created to write the text. Data from the workbook was linked within the text, providing accuracy and transparency in the collected information. Directed comments were used among collaborators to clarify messages.

To aid in the design and review process, Wdesk binders were used across team members for commenting and mark-ups.

Wdesk certifications were used to get final sign-off from multiple teams and executive management. The file was then exported from Wdesk into a format for publishing on our website.
