Leading technology companies must be competitive in their industry and top-notch employers. These two goals must be intertwined - and not at odds with one another. People will contribute more to an organization when they feel pride in what it stands for and what it enables them to do – whether that’s changing the world or being able to balance work and family. 
Mike will share the journey to being named one of Forbes “Best Employers” four years in a row, and how his passion for being a leading employer helps his team succeed at creating value for society and enabling those they serve with more sustainability, efficiency and productivity.
