The Global Semiconductor Shortage and Broken Supply Chains: How Technology Is Impacted and What Technology Can Do To Fix It.

Technology Executive Council | Crisis Management & Resilience | Digital Transformation & Innovation

Ford Motor Company Former President & CEO Mark Fields, Longview Global Managing Dir. & Sr. Policy Analyst Dewardric McNeal & Marvell Technology President and Chief Executive Officer Matt Murphy join CNBC “TechCheck” Co-Anchor Jon Fortt for a discussion on the global semiconductor shortage and broken supply chains.

  • Managing Director & Sr. Policy Analyst at Longview Global Dewardric McNeal believes the different geopolitical perspectives of countries competing in the tech industry can lead to long-term tech allocation issues beyond the pandemic.
  • “Rethinking your company’s supply chain can come with increased costs, however it can reduce your company’s risk from unknown factors that can significantly impact it, such as the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mark Fields, former President & CEO of Ford Motor Company.

How Are You Doing? A New Approach to Tackle the Burnout Crisis

Workforce Executive Council | Crisis Management & Resilience | Leadership & Management

How are you doing? A new approach to tackle the burnout crisis with Jennifer Moss, author of "The Burnout Epidemic: The Rise of Chronic Stress and How We Can Fix It", and CNBC's Sharon Epperson.

Key Points

  • To change the workplace culture that causes employee burnout, companies must first separate their well-being strategy and burnout prevention strategy. One is more upstream, looking at macro causes and fixing them, while the other promotes motivation,” says Jennifer Moss, author of “The Burnout Epidemic: The Rise of Chronic Stress and How We Can Fix It”.
  • According to Moss, create psychological safety and a safe space for employees through a diverse work team with different perspectives.
  • “Instead of recycling the same content, brief weekly team meetings must provide transparent communication reflecting on how the team worked together that week and how to collectively improve moving forward,” states Moss.
  • A certain comfort level must be established for employees to understand that their mental health is valued in the company. Therefore, executives must set the tone and display through their personal workstyle that mental health should be a priority for everyone. “Simple, thoughtful actions done with repetition equal positive well-being outcomes,” says Moss.

Recruiting, Retaining, and Returning to the Workplace

Workforce Executive Council | Talent Pipelines & Inclusion

The start of Septembr was critical in how companies navigate vaccine requirements, masking, and the return to the office. As summer winds down and fall kicks into action, we invite you to join us as we discuss the tight labor market and what some companies are doing to recruit and retain their employees. Watch live as CNBC Workforce Executive Council members DJ Casto of Synchrony, Tanya Harris of RealTruck and Nickle LaMoreaux of IBM participate in this panel addressing the challenges ahead and solutions we all should consider.

Key Points

  • According to DJ Casto, Synchrony CHRO, satisfying employee needs is not a “one size fits all” situation. Offer flexibility and choice to fit the employees’ personal and professional needs for them to truly excel. "Offer competitive wages for all the roles which are important to drive the business forward.”
  • During a labor shortage, Nickle LaMoreaux, IBM Senior Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer advises that, “Companies must take a ‘skills first’ approach. To retain talent, focus less on how or where applicants learned a skill and more on if they actually have it."
  • “As a smaller company, personal development is a key marketing point to sell. Not only can the company pay its workers competitively, but it will also provide a skill set that workers can use beyond their career at the company,” says Tanya Harris, RealTruck Executive Director of HR.
  • The current labor shortage is not just a wage issue. Applicants are reflecting on why they want to work, therefore companies must also stay true to their values and establish policies and programs that continuously reinforce them.

Transforming the Workplace: Cracking the Hybrid Code

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.

She joins the CNBC Workforce Executive Council as we discuss the changes we want to see in this next phase of work.

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.

A conversation focusing on the technological breakthroughs that resulted from the pandemic, specifically with vaccine distribution and the ability to track digital health data. Members also examined the relationship between a company's CEO and CIO in addressing improvements in technology to maintain and balance hybrid work in the post-pandemic period.

Key Points

  • According to Tyagarajan, CEO of Genpact and TEC member: "COVID-19 is not only a health problem but also a communication problem. One asymptomatic person can lead to a rapid spread of the virus, and this can be solved with rapid testing."
  • Despite the efficiency and convenience of digital communication, solely interacting virtually can make it more difficult to empathize with coworkers.
  • Working in the office should have an incentivizing factor that employees cannot replicate with remote work.

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.
