Our first episode is an open conversation with guests Rolando Balli and Mindy Garrett.
Rolando pioneered the work from home initiative at Dell that was put into operation ten years ago. Even now that he is not with Dell anymore, he still receives praise for his work that had very little data to support it at the time. We will get into the weeds on that effort and how he leveraged data that was not in the mainstream and was able to get buy-in from upper management and turn Dell into one of the first “remote workforces” in the country. Rolando is also committed to biophilic design which brings nature to the workplace.
Mindy, a former Cisco executive, recalls the excitement of working at one of the greatest technology companies of all time. She will also talk about a recent start up company she co-founded at the Capital Factory. She too supports working remotely and talks about the culture that made it great to show up to work every day.
We will also talk about the different generations and how that plays into today’s workplace. There are a few Easter eggs that I know you will find interesting as well. Welcome to GET SMART ABOUT PEOPLE & THE WORKPLACE!!
