COVID-19 flipped the script on what we knew about the working world. In what seemed like an instant, business and tech decision-makers were forced to accelerate their digital transformation agendas, many switching from an in-office structure to a digital or remote workforce. 

At Verizon, we’re proud to help businesses adapt to the challenges of the pandemic and stay updated on the fast-changing landscape for global enterprise as we shape the workplace of the future and return to business as unusual.

Leading with head, heart, and hands.

With the new ways of working transforming so rapidly, tech leaders are facing more challenges than ever before. In addition to having technology building blocks to handle a remote workforce, the integration of tech with the human touch, or the bionic organization, is key in remaining competitive and ensuring future success. 

For Sampath Sowmyanarayan, President of Verizon Global Enterprise, Verizon Business, the three key human-centric and interlocking pillars for leadership are the head, heart, and hands. Leading with these pillars in mind has helped Sampath inform new ways of working with his team and identify unique approaches for partnering with enterprise customers to help them win in the new normal.

Remote working is no longer a benefit, luxury, or convenience. Senior leaders will have to leverage this inflection point to drive sustainable competitive advantage for their organizations in the new normal.
