The Future of Work Is About Culture

About This Event

The C2C Navigators: Future of Work series gives you access to some of the top minds at Google Cloud, innovative customers, and leaders in the industry. Panel-style discussions moderated by Sabina Bhasin, C2C, will uncover how executives are talking about post-pandemic implications to the future of work and how organizations are staying agile and competitive. Bring your top questions to the experts by submitting them in advance and find the other sessions of this series below.

Gain insight into how CIOs, CTOs, and executives are defining their company culture, how to nurture the culture of change, and why it's important to measure the success of living out these values. Hear from Google Cloud VP of HR Brigette McInnis-Day, who will be joined by two familiar faces from the first session of the series—Kelly Ducourty and Peter High—to understand the impacts the pandemic has had on corporate culture and how Google and other organizations are adjusting.

Some of the key questions our panel will cover include:

  • What does the future hold for work-life integration as we return to the office?
  • How are businesses reconsidering approaches to talent planning, learning, and innovation?
  • What lessons learned over the past year can be used to address wellness and employee burnout?
