People are the Key to Digital Workforce Transformation

November 8, 2019

Your talent is the backbone of any digital workforce transformation. It’s only by diving into the needs of your own employees and by fulfilling their true expectations that you’ll be able to create a productive, engaged and loyal talent base. HR departments everywhere, and particularly those in the largest companies in the world, are accountable for a vast employee community. It’s up to the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) to leap into the breach to turn modern-day challenges into opportunities….

Meaningful Partnerships are at the Center of Alienware’s Commitment to Community

November 7, 2019

Great partnerships are built upon shared beliefs and long-term commitment. In my own life, there’s no better example of a partnership than the 19 years I’ve shared with my wife Jennifer. We started our life journey together as high school sweethearts. Professionally, I’ve seen Dell and Alienware become a beacon of how partnerships should be built – based on trust and commitment with a “community first” approach. Within the realm of Esports and gaming, core values of “listening and learning” are central…

A Culture of Service Enriches All of Our Lives

Each year on November 11, Veteran’s Day is a reminder to honor and share our gratitude for the remarkable contributions made by those who have served or are serving our country in the armed services. When I think about those who have served, including so many employees across Dell Technologies, what stands out to me is the consistency of their commitment to serve others. I see it every day among our team members who are veterans or are family members…

Now, our 3rd addition includes revamping the very spaces we do some of our most important collaborative work: meeting spaces. What does the future of collaboration look like?

Expanding the Life of IT on International E-Waste Day

October 14, 2019

The grueling summer heat in Austin is ending, and the fall breeze is finally starting to creep into the forecast. I love the fall because it has always had its share of traditions. Whether it is carving pumpkins – or going apple picking – or dressing up for Halloween. For me personally, the fall brings an abundance of events in which to celebrate and be thankful, birthdays, anniversaries and of course family gatherings during holidays. Our planet also embraces traditions….

Girls are a Force for our Future

October 11, 2019

In 2012, the United Nations established International Day of the Girl Child. The 2019 theme is “GirlForce: unscripted and unstoppable” and celebrates the achievements by, with and for girls. At Dell Technologies, we believe that girls are unstoppable and our social impact strategy includes a wide-reaching focus on improving lives and advancing opportunities for youth.

Data Democratizes Tech For Any Age

October 8, 2019

A few months ago, I read a Wall Street Journal article which really stuck with me. It was focused on the workplace divide when it comes to adopting new technology. The main takeaways? Tech resistance is not based on age and workers need to see how new technology will benefit them for optimal adoption. Recent research conducted by Dell with IPSOS, an independent firm, provides a case in point: Despite the understanding from employees that passwords protect their business’ data, 62% of employees of all ages…

Modern, smart and responsive devices have the potential of unlocking new ways of working; encouraging collaboration and boosting productivity….

Driving our Next Wave of Progress through CX Innovation

October 1, 2019

In today’s “always-on”, digital world, business-to-consumer (B2C) experiences are fundamentally changing business-to-business (B2B) expectations. Delivering great products and services, while important, are now table stakes. So, what will be our ultimate differentiator? The experience we deliver to all of our customers. It’s been proven that leaders in customer service outperform the Dow by 93%, the Fortune 500 by 20% and the NASDAQ by 335%.[1] That should not be a surprise, given 74% of companies say they’ll pay more for a…

August 2, 2019

By Karen Gilchrist, CNBC, July 16th, 2019 The San Francisco Bay Area has overtaken New York City as the most accommodative place in the world to be a female entrepreneur, according to a new study. Efforts to eliminate the so-called bro culture, increased access to funding for women and ongoing tech developments were some of the ways in which the Bay Area leapfrogged its East Coast rival to rank top of the 2019 Women Entrepreneur Cities (WE Cities) Index. Indeed,…

The Cities Where Women Entrepreneurs Are Flourishing

Route Fifty, Emma Coleman, July 25, 2019 Small businesses have been called the “engine of cities,” contributing to economic growth, boosting employment opportunities, and sparking innovation. There are 30.2 million small businesses in the U.S., and they employ a whopping 47.5% of the private workforce.  More than 12 million of those companies in the U.S. are owned by women—and that number has risen dramatically in the past decade. But while the number of female entrepreneurs has increased, many cities could be doing more to create a better culture for women in business, according to a new…

DWEN Returns to APJ: 10 Years of Celebrating Women Entrepreneurship

Ten years ago the first DWEN (Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network) Summit was hosted in Shanghai. Two main factors shaped the idea of DWEN – the fact that entrepreneurs are the force that historically leads the economy out of financial crisis, and that women business owners still struggled to access the capital, networks and resources they need to take their businesses to the next level. Fast forward to today, as delegates gathered from around the world for DWEN 2019 in Singapore,…

Celebrating 10 Years of DWEN!

July 22, 2019

I still remember our very first DWEN (Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network) Summit. 50 inspiring women from 11 countries joined us on June 19, 2010, in Shanghai, China. The goal? To collectively discuss how we could remove unique barriers for women entrepreneurs to succeed…namely, access to capital, technology, networks and advocacy. Fast forward to this past week, nine years later…we hosted our 10th annual DWEN Summit in Singapore, and our network has grown to more than 5,000 women from 42 countries!…

Our Great Opportunity to Transform Lives

July 9, 2019

How do we make the world a better place? Just the enormity of that statement may deter any one person from acting because the task, on the surface, seems so daunting. We’re battling poverty, hunger, environmental issues and the list goes on. But as with any huge project, it is important to start small. To take a step back and understand the root of what you’re trying to accomplish, how you are going to tackle it, and what tools and…

Tackling the Fastest Growing Domestic Waste Stream Takes Circular Thinking

With the summer time in full swing, most of us are thinking about vacation, beaches, and finding ways to escape on our next adventure. My idea of an adventure is embedding myself in nature by going on a nice long bike ride. It’s important to spend time with nature to remind us of its beauty, fragility and our responsibility to protect it. Advancing sustainability is a key focus for our 2030 vision. We have a responsibility to protect and enrich…

We Must Build A Future Workforce For ALL

The latest Future of Jobs Report by the World Economic Forum suggests that the rapid evolution of machines and algorithms in the workplace could create 133 million new roles between now and 2022. That’s a heck of a lot of jobs to fill. This is a great problem to have, but a problem none the less if we are not in a position to take advantage of the opportunity. According to the quarterly Gartner Emerging Risks Survey, talent shortage rated as one…
