IT Visionaries

Mar 31, 2020

In the last few months, we have seen quite a shift in our world. Our day-to-day lives are vastly different, and the way many of us live and work has changed. Companies around the globe are adjusting to this new normal and trying to navigate how to not only manage their workforces and provide the necessary technology and productivity tools but, more importantly, how to ensure their employees’ wellbeing. On this special episode of IT Visionaries, we brought in two tech leaders, Julie Cullivan, the Chief People, and Technology Officer at ForeScout Technologies, and Sarah Franklin, the EVP & GM Platform, Trailhead & Developers at Salesforce, to discuss how they are navigating through these unprecedented times. Things are hard, there’s no doubt about it, but as both women say, when you put the human element first, have empathy for others, and keep a positive attitude, we can all make it through this together. 

Key Takeaways:

  • The human element and how people are managing on a human level must always come first
  • New work environments pose unique challenges, from how to provide productivity tools to how to encourage employees to maintain a separation between work and home
  • When we get through this, we will be living in a new normal, and it might actually include changes for the better
