On this episode of Chip Chat, Intel CIO Archie Deskus talks with host Allyson Klein about how Intel was able to successfully pivot its workforce while maintaining business operations. Because Intel created a Pandemic Leadership Team (PLT) following the SARS outbreak of 2002-2003, there was some preparation for half of all employees work remotely, but the speed and severity of this pandemic forced the company to innovate rapidly.
The two discuss why Intel needed to make numerous changes across manufacturing, supply chain, sales and marketing, human resources and finance while supporting 100,000 remote workers worldwide and go into further details about how Intel IT was able to double VPN capacity over a single weekend.
