Virtual Roundtable: Empowering the New State of Work

On May 27, 2021, The IT Media Group will host a Canadian CIO virtual roundtable, “Empowering the New State of Work.”

Work is a critical part of many people's lives.

With recent technology improvements and shifts brought on by the pandemic, CIOs have a unique opportunity to rethink where and how work gets done. To meet their organization's objectives, IT leaders are leveraging modern collaboration tools and open platforms to help realize potential.

Even though more than 70% of workers want flexible remote work options to continue, the goal is not just about pushing work out to employees' homes. Companies need to acknowledge that two-thirds of the workforce wish for more in-person time with their teams. Businesses require a hybrid approach to balance worker desires with the organization's employee well-being and productivity goals.

CIOs have mandates to implement greater resilience to protect their organizations from further disruptions. They must also seek opportunities to adjust business models and structures to improve the employee experience and satisfy customer engagement expectations.

This roundtable will address employee and customer experience priorities, challenges, and approaches that CIOs implement in the new state of work. It will help IT executives baseline their expertise with their peers and validate their concerns and successes across industries. Participants will be encouraged to share practical use-cases for solving their challenges.

This roundtable will explore the following areas:

1. Imperatives of the new work model

      • Hybrid work environments
      • The sustainability agenda
      • Engaging with customers

2. Roadblocks in the path to growth

      • Employee challenges
      • Technology and organizational barriers

3. Approaches to unlock potential

      • Enabling collaboration
      • Digitizing the enterprise

4. Transforming the organization

      • Re-imagining the customer experience
