The Future of Work - Digital & Distributed

The future of work has arrived!   As the world quickly shifted to a distributed workforce using a digital workspace, VMware accelerated the journey we had already begun:  to enable our people to work anywhere, anytime using any app on any device and any cloud.  It’s our heritage and central to what we do every day as a company.  And we recognized that flexibility and choice would be two of the main tenants for success.  We will share our experience over the past six months and provide a glimpse for how we are preparing for the post-pandemic future.
