Igloo's digital workplace platform is one of many initiatives at NCCEP that will further empower our members as they shape the lives of young people and propel their journey to, and through, postsecondary education."

"Realizing the future of work begins by supporting the young minds of today who in turn, will be the leaders of tomorrow," said Dan Latendre, Founder & CEO, Igloo Software. "Igloo is changing the way the world works and enabling our younger generation to succeed in the future of work by partnering with world class organizations like NCCEP.

Igloo's digital workplace solutions, designed for the needs of not-for-profit organizations, include:

    --  Boardroom: From scheduling events to posting policies and meeting
        minutes, the Boardroom offers a simple and effective way to help board
        members prepare, stay organized, keep a history of their meetings, and
        action the outcomes.
    --  Onboarding Center: From welcoming new hires to on-the-job training and
        FAQ forums, the Onboarding Center is a complete solution that gets new
        employees and volunteers up to speed in a fraction of the time of more
        traditional orientation processes.
    --  Governance Center: The Governance Center is a dedicated space to ensure
        all staff have easy access to policies, procedures, and documentation,
        helping to mitigate risk and protect the organization. Centralize,
        disseminate, and manage business critical information to eliminate any
        confusion and ensure everyone's accountable in an organization's digital
        workplace.
    --  Newsroom: Provides a one-stop destination for critical organization and
        industry news to make it easy for employees and volunteers to remain
        informed and aligned. Bring together weekly updates, blog channels,
        market news, and social feeds with Newsroom and help promote a culture
        of transparency.
    --  Company Directory: A centralized directory makes it easy to find the
        right person, team, or expertise. It also helps employees and volunteers
        understand how and where they fit into an organization's overall
        structure.
    --  Social Zone: The Social Zone provides a digital focal point for events,
        clubs, and activities helping employees and volunteers feel a personal
        and professional sense of belonging. Community classifieds, polls, photo
        walls, and microblogs help unite teams across geographic and
        departmental divides.
