IT Pro Live: Enabling culture through technology

How to use technology and tools to create a productive and welcoming workplace

By now, we all know that the function of IT is about more than just laptops and servers; IT is instrumental in helping keep staff connected not just to services and infrastructure, but to the business as a whole. In this Q&A session, Rebecca George OBE, managing partner at Deloitte and workplace culture specialist, explores how to proactively use technology to build and enhance a strong sense of internal culture within a business, why IT needs to become the department of 'yes' and how to prevent staff from burning out.
