“If the last decade was about moving to the cloud, this decade is about transforming and improving the employee experience.
- Brad Anderson

It’s hard to find many constants in today’s business world, but if there’s anything we’ve learned over the past year, it’s that the employee experience is more important than ever before.

If the last decade was about moving to the cloud, this decade is about transforming and improving the employee experience — and it’s why keeping your workforce satisfied and engaged by continuously designing and improving the experiences you deliver will be vital in the future of work.

To better understand how organizations are doing this at scale, we've developed a new series, Ctrl+B, focusing on how tech leaders have connected with their workforce, boosted productivity, and positively impacted their culture and the bottom line.

Watch the first episode of Ctrl+B now, with guests Bobby Ford, CISO at Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE) and Julie Zide, Global Head of People Science at Goldman Sachs.

In the first episode of Ctrl+B you’ll hear how:

  • Goldman Sachs listens to and acts on employee feedback to drive greater performance, retention, and morale
  • important “moment in time” listening is when it comes to the employee journey
  • continuous employee listening is a competitive advantage for companies like HPE
  • employee data is just as critical to the health of a business as more traditional data points like financials


The first episode of Ctrl+B is out now
