Gartner defines Leaders as providers who "deliver their service solutions skillfully, have a clear vision of the direction of the service market, and are actively building and improving their competencies to sustain their leadership positions. The Leaders quadrant indicates the direction of the MWS market. However, most digital workplace offerings still have low adoption rates. Ten providers have emerged as Leaders in this Magic Quadrant. Leaders have demonstrated their experience in delivering MWS and understand the requirements to successfully deliver these services."  In addition, the report states that Leaders "have proved their ability to execute and a completeness of vision."

According to Gartner, "With the workplace as the front line of digital change and employee engagement, innovative workplace services give organizations a competitive edge."
