Attend the CIO UK Big Conversation: Unlock the potential of your frontline workers


One of the biggest disruptions for enterprise organisations and CIOs in the last decade has been the impact of the consumerisation of IT, while a more recent trend has been the acknowledgement among C-level leaders of the war for talent and empowering their frontline employees as part of their innovation agendas.

At this CIO UK Big Conversation event, hosted with partners Google Chrome Enterprise, on Wednesday 11 September at the London EDITION we will discuss how CIOs and technology executives are tackling these challenges by empowering frontline workforces with cloud-enabled technology suites.

The shop window to your organisation in many organisations, an expert panel will discuss how cloud-enabled end-user technology can make sure your organisation doesn't get left behind, and how empowering an organisation's frontline workforce can form a significant part of improving the customer experience and ultimately your company's bottom line.

The panel will also discuss skills shortages, recruitment and retention - and how a secure, collaborative suite of tools can help improve motivation, attract top talent and reduce churn. As organisations balance the challenges of optimisation and innovation, we will also share case studies about enabling bottom-up innovation by empowering frontline workers to improve any organisation's operations.

Topics to be discussed at this CIO UK Big Conversation panel include:

  • Improving end-user technology so your organisation doesn't get left behind
  • How empowering your frontline workforce can improve customer experience, and the bottom line
  • Security by design while empowering your workforce at the edge
  • How improving the employee experience of frontline workers can improve motivation and retention
  • Collaboration platforms, process optimisation and bottom-up innovation
