Technology Executive Council | Digital Transformation & Innovation | Future of Work | Leadership & Management

A discussion on hybrid work, digital transformation, NFTs, and more

Key Points

  • The next iteration of communication and collaboration tools includes smart galleries, AI-enabled meetings, and shareable virtual whiteboards that will help enable the “democratization of meetings” that emerged in the midst of the pandemic to continue.
  • When considering a fully remote workplace, be willing to weather any of the downside of remote work in exchange for the opportunity to hire people anywhere in the world.
  • NFT’s have gone mainstream and this is having an impact on the world of art and collectibles. These digital assets will likely impact the worlds of music, drawings, and video games in the years ahead.

Key Points

  • Vaccine convenience still matters. Employers can potentially increase vaccinations among employees through on-site vaccination centers.
  • The majority of people who are unvaccinated are not extremely opposed to the vaccine, so there is still an opportunity to convince them about safety and convenience.
  • In moments that seem like major turning points, such as switching from remote to in-office work, motivate individuals to be more productive and welcome change.

WEC Member Forum

Workforce Executive Council | Leadership & Management | Talent Pipelines & Inclusion

A discussion on mediating the workplace's most polarizing issues at the moment, including balancing hybrid work, encouraging diversity and inclusion in the C-suite, and political division.

Key Points

  • There is robust evidence that the most productive workers can work from anywhere rather than just work from home. They are typically more satisfied and appreciate their autonomy.
  • Hyperproductivity and micromanagers negatively affect an individual's productivity.
  • Create a "brave space" to be vulnerable with coworkers and become more educated on topics such as race, gender, sexuality, and many other factors
  • There will be equality once we can no longer predict workplace outcomes based on someone's identity.
  • Executives must maintain full transparency with workers and allow them to have some degree of influence in a decision that affects them.
