IDC Opening Keynote: The Work Revolution in 2022

Angela Salmeron

Research Director, Future of Work, European Region, IDC
We are now entering a "new era" that is fluid, fast moving, and highly disruptive. In this transition, the world of work has profoundly changed and how employees get the work done. Many established enterprises, unable to transform, will die. Many others, however, will emerge from the crisis stronger and will set the pace for competitors, disrupting the old guard.

What will differentiate high-performing companies from the rest? High performers function as a living organism, by being agile and connected to a fast-paced environment. Crucially, their most basic cell —their employees —are empowered to set their companies for business success.

Employee empowerment (including Employee Experience) and business success are the two sides of the same coin. Get them right and your company is posed for a thriving new era. Resignation or retention? The choice is yours.

Platinum Partner Keynote: “Becoming an ‘Anywhere Organization’: The New Normal | Beyond Just Working Remotely?”

Sarah Swatman

Senior Director, Solution Engineers, End User Computing EMEA, VMware

We’re all used to the pandemic-driven shift to work from home. Many organizations have gone even further to systematize what was initially an emergency response. But many are starting to wonder what lies beyond even this – how can remote working be turned into a business advantage? VMware believes that the answer is to become an ‘Anywhere Organization’ in which it no longer matters where work takes place - the employee experience and level of security is the same or better than before, and managing it all can be done consistently, simply and transparently, wherever it’s happening. This is the new world of hybrid work.

In this session, Sarah Swatman, Senior Director, Digital Workspace Specialist Solutions for VMware in EMEA explores what’s required to become a secure Anywhere Organization, how doing so can make your business a more attractive place to work, and gives practical advice on how to get there.

Platinum Partner Keynote: Consumerizing the employee experience

Adrienne Doyle

Vice President, Modern Workplace, EMEA, DXC Technology

Employees today expect more from their employers. And in turn, employers understand that happy employees perform best when they feel supported and empowered to work in the ways they feel most comfortable. This presents many companies with a positive challenge to use technology to deliver a more personalised employee experience. One that they are accustomed to with the many interactions they have in their daily lives. DXC believes strongly in delivering this personalised experience through technology and making the integration of work and technology seamless.
