Driving cultural transformation with a multigenerational workforce

Whatever the future holds, attracting and empowering the next generation will be key to success. Today, we are at an inflection point where the majority of leaders in decision-making roles are millennials, or those born after 1980, who are  working alongside multi-generational teams. How are IT and business leaders making decisions that empower these teams and anticipate the needs of  the future generation of our workforce? Join this session to hear from TELUS and the US Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command – two organizations at the forefront of driving culture change.

Empowering your frontline workforce as a strategic advantage

From factory workers to bartenders and ambulance drivers, deskless workers have not traditionally been given access to the same collaboration applications as their office-based colleagues, but this is changing. Equipping your frontline workforce with modern tools and digitizing processes creates efficiency and builds a culture of collaboration, helping these workers feel more connected to the organization’s mission. Join this session to discover  our customers Autogrill and Akron share how they gained strategic advantage by  empowering their “deskless workers.”

Return to office or remote work forever: A conversation on the future of hybrid work

Whether your organization has mandated returning to the office or embraced working remotely, one thing is clear: Teams need the flexibility to connect, collaborate, and get things done from anywhere, at any time. Employees and customers increasingly span time zones, and meetings include a blend of people attending in conference rooms, home offices, and even cars, buses, or trains. Synchronous work – work where everyone comes together at the same place and time – is no longer the only way to co-create and innovate. Join this conversation with Google Workspace partners SADA and AODocs which are enabling their customers with solutions that maximize team collaboration in this new world of hybrid work.

Hacking Digital Transformation with Google Workspace

The two biggest secrets about digital transformation are that it’s not a one-time event and that it doesn’t have to be a multimillion dollar initiative. Instead, it’s a series of small changes an organization makes that drive agility and alignment across these five dimensions: culture and mindset, user experience, process transformation, technology leadership, and operating models. Join this session to learn how to “hack” your digital transformation and successfully drive incremental changes to your organization.
