    Rethinking the Way We Work: It’s About Choice - Guest: Massimo Rapparini, CIO Logitech

    Many people who once used an office building to find collaboration and leverage corporate resources have had to find those things elsewhere. This has left a permanent imprint on workforce habits, individual skills, and company culture, one that has already changed the way we fundamentally think about how we work. In the wake of this massive shift, we ask the question, what is the office for? Will the new way of working be purely about choice? How will organizations enable this from a technology and leadership perspective?

    In this episode, we hear from Logitech's CIO, Massimo Rapparini, who shares his company's shift to a remote workforce, and how they are rethinking their approach to what it means to be on a "team," while tackling the tough challenges of safely bringing people back into the office.

    If CIOs are going to be held accountable for revenue goals, they need more say in the products their company offers and the skills needed to propel the company forward.

They also recognize the culture changes most important to IT professionals: to become more innovative, to increase partnerships within the business, and to collaborate more, both with their own staffers and the business lines they work with. Clearly, these are key ingredients for success and your new recruiting charter.
