Rethinking the digital workplace with leaders from American Express, NIKE and Farmers Insurance and more

The world is changing how it works on a near daily basis. There’s a new generation of workers with different expectations and cultural norms. Business is more global, real-time and connected. Security challenges are enormous, and compliance and privacy are only getting more complex. Given these tectonic shifts, it’s incredibly important to bring creative leaders together to rethink how businesses can securely embrace the digital age.

That’s why today we’re joining forces with Workplace by Facebook and Okta to form the Future of Work Council, a working group of leaders, including both senior IT and HR executives at enterprises from various industries focused on rethinking the culture, skills, organization and technology required to enable the future of work in the digital age. We’ll meet regularly to review research, share ideas and develop best practices for enabling, managing and securing the digital workplace. The inaugural meeting will take place this week from May 9-10.

Member companies of the Council represent a mix of industries and include large, innovative enterprises like American Express, NIKE, Pfizer, Farmers Insurance, Deloitte, Heidrick & Struggles, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Eli Lilly. All of the participating companies strive for greater collaboration and agility in their businesses, as well as leverage human capital to increase competitive advantage and achieve their organizations’ missions.

The Future of Work Council is co-hosted by Box, Workplace by Facebook and Okta and will convene this week at our headquarters in Redwood City, CA and Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, CA. The meeting will feature industry and academic experts on the digital workplace, technology leaders and an exchange of best practices.
