New Dell UltraSharp Monitors Built to Foster Better Workdays, More Loyal Workers

October 19, 2018

Anyone who’s worked in an office knows the role an individual’s workspace can play in the course of their day. Just as a squeaky chair or sticky keyboard can make every day a subtle nightmare, a clean, optimized workspace puts people in the headspace to achieve stress-free productivity and deliver better customer experiences. And it’s hard to think of a workspace fixture that has a bigger effect on productivity than the monitor. Forrester 1 has found that visually appealing, productivity-enabling monitors…

Island Adventure: How One Teacher Found Connection With the Planet & Her Classroom

October 18, 2018

“We looked for harmful algal blooms – and we learned about how this is happening because of people and climate change. Fish eat these algae. Sea lions eat the fish. Scientists are seeing how harmful algae is affecting neurochemicals of the sea lions’ brains – and that was a memorable lesson for me,” says Clara Herrera, a fifth-grade teacher at Clayton Elementary School in Austin, Texas. Herrera is excited and descriptive when she talks about her recent five-day research expedition…

The Core of our Culture Code

October 11, 2018

By Cris Turner It’s no secret: people are the most important asset of virtually every company. In fact, a study by Korn Ferry found that human capital is four times more valuable to the US economy than physical assets. As a result, anything companies can do to improve employee conditions and performance, will benefit the company largely. Dell has always understood this reality. Thirty years ago, Michael Dell founded his namesake in his UT dorm room with the explicit purpose…

‘Power Trip’ to Bring 200 Boss Women Together, Building Leadership and Community

While women make up a majority of the U.S. population, they only account for 39% of business owners. That percentage has been climbing, and Dell is dedicated to helping female entrepreneurs find success in today’s business world. As a technology leader, we also want to listen to and learn the challenges they face. That’s why we’re supporting the third annual Power Trip, hosted by Marie Claire magazine and powered by Dell and Intel on October 15th and 16th – a…

It’s International Day of the Girl: Let’s Celebrate Progress (and Make Some More)

When I think about International Day of the Girl, I remember how my college basketball coach asked me to speak in front of a group of Fortune 500 executives. I had never spoken to top execs before, let alone a room full of them! I had my self-doubts, but ultimately, I chose to be bold. I shared my story of how at 5’5, I landed myself in a D-1 basketball program. Afterward, many offered their business cards and encouraged me…

It’s Time for Businesses to Foster a Skilled Girl Force: A View From a Technology Intern

This year’s International Day of the Girl is all about creating a skilled Girl Force, drawing attention and investment for girls to gain skills, experience and employment. Consistently underrepresented fields for women are the science and technology fields. Women in STEM fields only make up 15 per cent of the workforce with research showing that factors such as implicit and explicit biases, lack of role models and quality mentoring all have an impact on the number of women applying for…

Celebrating the Many Faces of Customer Experience

October 10, 2018

We’re living in the “Age of the Customer,” a time when the customer experience is overtaking price and product as a company’s key brand differentiator. In fact, it’s been estimated that 85% of a customer’s decision to purchase is based solely on their current and previous customer experience! At Dell Technologies, we’ve always known our customers expect more than industry-leading solutions and services when they partner with us. They also expect an industry-leading experience and relationship that helps accelerate their…

Celebremos! Dell Team Members Reflect on Hispanic Heritage

October 1, 2018

As a proud member of the Latino community, I always love this time of the year—Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). It’s a time to reflect on and appreciate the contributions that Hispanic Americans have made and continue to make on society.  And at Dell, the month gives us an opportunity to celebrate and give a glimpse to our heritage. Born in Panama and raised in South America, I was exposed to different cultures and economic environments. Despite the differences,…

STEMAspire Interview

September 24, 2018

When my colleague in the Glasgow office met Vardah Malik, my mentee, he was keen to understand how the program had been working for her and asked some questions about how her journey had been so far and what the future held. This gave me an idea to create a blog around these questions and to publish the answers from both sides of the fence – being a mentee and being a mentor.   How have you found the journey…

College is the goal. How this organization empowers kids to get there.

September 20, 2018

As a high school senior in California last year, Jose knew his Dad was excited about his college application process – even if he didn’t have much experience with how it all worked. Jose has been aiming for a degree in computer sciences—a big goal, since nobody in his family has ever graduated from college. But since he was young, Jose has had a unique support system through the California-based organization, and Dell Youth Learning partner, Peninsula Bridge. Academic advisers…

Professional Creativity on the Go With the World’s Smallest 15” 2-in-1 Mobile Workstation

September 18, 2018

Work is no longer a destination; workspaces have become the backseat of a van, an airport, or if you’re lucky, possibly even the luxury of a coffee shop. We recognize that you need your device to adapt to your lifestyle and technology should never hinder creativity or productivity, especially for customers in compute-intensive fields such as film, architecture, engineering, the sciences or photography where mobility is just part of the job. That is why we developed the new Dell Precision…

Dell Joins Cross-Industry Coalition to Advance Women of Color in Tech

September 12, 2018

Today, Pivotal Ventures, an investment and incubation company created by Melinda Gates and McKinsey & Company released new research on closing the gender gap in tech. The report analyzes philanthropic contributions from 32 leading tech companies. It reveals that only 5% of company’s philanthropy goes toward gender diversity in tech and even less (0.1%) goes toward women of color. The low investment has gotten the tech industry’s attention, and we’re responding by joining forces in a new initiative launched by…

A Surprise Job Offer for a Rising Star

September 10, 2018

A few years ago, my oldest son became a student at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. As he was preparing to head out for his freshman year, I ran across a Houston Chronicle article about one his new classmates, a student named Starjjil “Star” Shelvin, from Katy, Texas. The article told the story of how Star was able to overcome a lot of adversity including the death of a parent and significant financial struggles that resulted in him having…

Equality For All!

August 25, 2018

August 26 is Women’s Equality Day, commemorating the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote in the U.S. Nearly 100 years later, this day has come to mean even more as both women and men make concerted efforts to achieve full gender equality, especially in the workplace. As a working mother and senior executive, I’m often asked, “how do you do it all? How do you manage both work and family?” I’m always willing to share…

Dell’s Latest Packaging Innovation Helps India Breathe Clean

August 22, 2018

If you’ve travelled to places like India and China recently, you know that air quality is a serious concern. Growing up in Delhi, I’ve personally witnessed the rapid decline in air quality over the years. In November 2017, Delhi’s air quality was so bad that it was similar to smoking 50 cigarettes per day. So when Chakr Innovation came to Dell’s internal Innovation Olympics last year to pitch us on a business solution that addresses this very issue, we were…

Everything is bigger in Texas – even the impact of tariffs

August 21, 2018

By Michael Young Did you know that China is Texas’s third largest export market?  Or that China is the second largest country of origin for Texas imports? Or that Texas is the third most popular U.S. state for Chinese foreign investment?  Like all things Texas, the impact of U.S.-China tariffs is bigger on the Lone Star state. In a June letter to President Trump, Governor Greg Abbott noted, : “[The] tariffs set to go into effect on roughly $50 billion…

5 Things to Know About Today’s Job Seeker and Dell’s Renewed Job Site

August 20, 2018

Whether you are a renter or home buyer, you know the importance of curb appeal in the real estate market. The impression you receive when you first lay eyes on a potential home shapes and influences your opinion before you even set foot inside the door. If the exterior of the home is unkempt and outdated, you automatically assume the interior must match. The same can be said for a job seeker and a company’s career site. Today’s job seeker…

Putting Analysis into Action

August 15, 2018

By Michael Young Entrepreneurs are the world’s job creators.  By 2025, the world will need 600 million new jobs to employ the entire eligible workforce.  Women entrepreneurs are critical to growing the global economy.  It’s estimated that there are 274 million women entrepreneurs worldwide.  But studies show that while women are starting businesses twice as fast as men, they have disproportionately higher rate of failure. Empowering women entrepreneurs is a priority for Dell and we continue to invest in research…

New Tools Help Cities Support Female Entrepreneurs

According to the World Bank, women typically reinvest 90 percent of their income back into their families and communities. So, it would seem in the best interest of cities to support female entrepreneurs. Yet, World Bank’s research also shows that only 30 percent of formal small and medium enterprises around the world are owned and run by women. To help governments and policymakers enable more women entrepreneurs, Dell has launched new diagnostic tools built on the findings of our 2017…
