Innovation Through Collaboration
The massive shift to remote collaboration has fundamentally changed how we work together. Technology plays a starring role in this story. Host Melanie Green explores the links between collaboration and innovation and what business leaders and thinkers are doing to take it to the next level.
Think about the move to virtual learning by schools everywhere. Think about the countless medical clinics that moved online overnight to continue helping patients. Think about the great innovations in technology that had to happen in a short time to make all of this possible.
Tune in to hear more about this explosion in innovation and what business leaders can do to sustain it as hybrid work takes hold.
From Great Resignation to Great Rejuvenation
In August, 4.3 million Americans left their jobs. We’ll talk to one worker who quit in search of more flexibility and a better work life balance. Plus Liz Fosslien, Head of Content at Humu, unpacks what this means for companies, and what we can learn at this transformational moment.
Hybrid work trailblazers
Ten years ago, Sacha Connor pioneered virtual work in the large corporation she worked for. Now Sacha works with business leaders making the transition to remote and hybrid work. When Sacha started her work experiment a decade ago, many of the tools we have now for connecting remotely didn’t exist. Gen Z guest Liana Hakobyan, on the other hand, was born into a digital world. Liana is part of a generation that is most comfortable in hybrid and remote work. She gives her take on how organizations can attract and retain future business leaders.
The Realities of Cyber Security Threats
Ransomware and other cyber threats have evolved in recent years , and with that so has cybersecurity. In this episode we’ll share stories of modern day cyber attacks that keep IT professionals up at night. We'll hear about a cyber attack that impacted a country's health service, an attack on a legal firm's web server that exposed sensitive client data, and we’ll hear how attackers found vulnerable systems in a small company's network and got in. Experts share advice about best security practices for organizations and individuals alike. It's #CyberSecurityMonth, and this is an episode you won't want to miss.
The Meeting Dilemma
Humans have a complicated relationship with meetings. We need to meet but we don't always do it well. Hybrid work adds another tricky layer. Host Melanie Green explores our love-hate relationship with meetings, why they matter, and how they could even be the highlight of the day.
Back to the Office Jitters
For many, hybrid work presents an opportunity for companies and employees to change how they work. But at the same time a lot of people are nervous about getting back to the office. They’re grappling with a lack of flexibility, the hassle of the daily commute, and finding work life balance. Remote Works is your personal hybrid work survival guide. We’re digging into the big questions about how work is changing again. Questions about how and where we meet now. Security. And what Gen Z can teach the rest of us about the new hybrid workplace. This episode is all about back to the office jitters. We’ll hear how Ultima, a company in the UK, is easing people back into the office with its own unique blueprint for a new hybrid workplace.
