How Companies Can Stay Ahead as AI Disrupts the Workforce | CNBC
Interview at TiEcon Detroit 2018
Organizations are faced with one of the largest movement of workers in history: back to their own physical places of business. Making sure that people can transition smoothly requires strong ethos, understanding of compliance requirements and most of all, the creation of a safety culture around workers and the workplace. Through examples and case studies, Dr. Sastry discussed the ways in which successful safety organizations create and execute policy, and the requirements needed for the age of COVID-19.
We all know of examples of algorithms that can spot errors, trends and opportunities – and make decisions. But how do organizations truly leverage AI? The reality is that all businesses must adopt a digital culture – one in which there is an understanding of the collection, structuring and application of algorithms – from the front lines to the C Suite. Through industry-wide studies and specific cases, Dr. Sastry describes how awareness, respect and desire to leverage data and AI are instilled in top organizations. She provides guidance on building agile, successful infrastructures and processes for sourcing the AI tools that are required for competitiveness.
Is your company really a family? No, it isn't. We commonly use metaphors that are comfortable, but misleading to ourselves as leaders, and to our workforces, in attempting to show qualities that really are important. Dr. Sastry, the founder of two successful tech companies that were recognized for workplace excellence, discusses the process for creating the principles that drive your unique business - and putting them into action. Through examples and case studies, she shows how culture is an outcome of function, and how leading companies create authentic, high performance cultures suited to their missions and sectors.
Are you struggling to achieve greater representation? Are you concerned about the risks to your organization – in reduced competitiveness, and liability, in not becoming a welcoming environment? Dr. Sastry talks about the experience of being the "first" or "only," in the context of leaders and organizational cues that made her accomplishments possible. She describes the transformation of biases into positive action, in organizations that she has led. She also discusses leadership habits and traits that enable people of disparate backgrounds and values to work together, professionally. From workshops, signals and signage, to company-making and breaking decisions, Dr. Sastry shares some of her own experiences that created workplaces that welcomed everyone.
