[Welcome and Opening Keynote] Team Human: Working Together in a Hybrid World
Join Reworked.co's Editor in Chief, Mike Prokopeak, World Wide Technology's Joe Berger, and keynote speaker, Douglas Rushkoff as we kick off the Digital Workplace Experience, "Enabling & Optimizing the Hybrid Workplace."
Our technologies and the workplace processes they support should provide human beings with the capabilities they need to create and exchange value together. We can no longer think of our employees as competing individuals, or measure their worth purely in terms of their utilitarian value. Instead of using big data and machine learning to replace human creativity, we must use it to empower human ingenuity. Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Rushkoff will reveal how fostering collaboration and celebrating deep competency gives human beings everything they need to thrive in the workplace of the future.

[Closing Keynote] Addressing Employee Burnout in the Digital Workplace
Join us as we close day one of the Digital Workplace Experience, "Enabling & Optimizing the Hybrid Workplace."
To Emily Esfahani Smith, there’s a way for everyone to find professional and creative fulfillment through actively pursuing purpose, no matter their line of work. And finding out how is urgent: experts estimate that one of the very tangible consequences of disengagement is a staggering $7 trillion in lost productivity. In this invigorating keynote, Smith explores what employers can do to electrify a static environment, and retain the talent they worked hard to bring on board in the first place—as well as the changes workers can make to feel intrinsically motivated, engaged, and fulfilled. It’s all about harnessing the four pillars of meaning at work: belonging, purpose, transcendence, and storytelling. When employees feel like what they’re doing matters-to the company, to the community, and to themselves-they’re more productive, innovative, and more likely to participate in-and create-a positive workplace culture: and Smith will show you how.

[Welcome and Keynote Address] Staying Safe at a Distance: Security in the Age of Remote Work
Join Reworked.co's Editor in Chief, Mike Prokopeak, as we kick off day two of the Digital Workplace Experience, "Enabling & Optimizing the Hybrid Workplace."
Spearfishing and business intelligence theft has increased multifold since the shift to remote work, and recent cyber and ransomware attacks have cost companies millions of dollars. Given the current situation, transitioning skilled employees to security awareness has never been more difficult or more timely. How can we effectively prepare our employees now that data is not only secured through the office, but is now often left to the good graces of our home Internet? Internationally renowned cyber operations expert Tarah Wheeler is here to help. Mobility is part of modernity, says Wheeler. Remote work isn’t going anywhere, so it’s imperative that we learn how to properly secure employee data and company laptops at home-which means investing in our people and teaching them how to be personally secure. In this talk, she shares the ins-and-outs of digital security since both the cloud revolution and the telecommuting transition began—ensuring we can all confidently become good stewards of company data in the age of remote work.
Introduction of keynote speaker, Tarah Wheeler, by keynote sponsor (iOffice + SpaceIQ) speaker, Mike Petrusky

[Closing Keynote] The Power of Us: Harnessing Identity to Improve Performance
Join us as we close out day two of the Digital Workplace Experience, "Enabling & Optimizing the Hybrid Workplace."
While we may think of our identities as stable and coming from within; the reality is, they are constantly changing and powerfully influenced by our membership within different groups. Jay Van Bavel explores how identity is shaped and reshaped by the social worlds we are a part of, and what this means for our potential for collaboration, our performance, and social harmony at large. Groups are central to how people define themselves, explains Van Bavel and they can have profound effects on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This stimulating talk will show audiences how to apply cutting-edge findings in social psychology and cognitive neuroscience in the real world-including how shared identity can help us tackle our biggest problems with more unity, cohesion, and effective collaboration.
