Pete Schlampp, our EVP of product development, and Sayan Chakraborty, our EVP of technology, share how we foster product and technology innovation through our culture to best serve our customers.
Workday was founded on a disruptive idea, and we’ve thrived since our founding because of our commitment to our core values and dedication to creating value for all of our stakeholders. Our customers and our employees see those values in action. In that spirit, we're proud to announce the release of our 2019 Global Impact Report, which serves as a strong reminder of these commitments and our roots.
Most people support the idea of growing diversity and inclusion in the corporate world because it’s the “right thing to do.” No question there. Yet what sometimes gets missed in the discussion is why having more diverse teams leads to better ideas and decisions, and ultimately, greater innovation. That’s where Frans Johansson comes in. Johansson—author, speaker, and co-founder and CEO at The Medici Group—has made it his life’s work to help businesses understand how they can accelerate their innovation and growth through diversity, with a client list that has included Disney, Johnson &amp; Johnson, and Pfizer. At Workday, we were excited to have Johansson participate in a panel discussion with several of our executives during VIBE Week, June 3-7, that was livestreamed to our employees across the globe.
VIBE Week is for Workday employees, but with so much great content, we’d love to share some of what we learn with others.
