What does the future of work look like in a (quasi) post-pandemic world? That’s a question all businesses — from startups to large corporations — ask as they think about how to allocate and manage their workforces in 2022 and beyond.
Airbnb, for example, opted for a live everywhere, work everywhere policy, while Twitter has gone hybrid. Distributed work comes with challenges and, like Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal noted:“Anyone who has joined a meeting remotely while others are in a conference room knows this pain.”
Whichever course startups choose, they will have more remote staff than ever before. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that Mathilde Collin, co-founder and CEO of Front, and Adriana Roche, chief people officer at Mural, will be addressing this topic on the podium of Disrupt australiabusinessblog.com on October 18-20 in San Francisco.
In a session called How To Manage Staff In A Remote, Asynchronous Reality, Collin and Roche will identify the different challenges and help founders understand how to manage remote staffers. They’ll talk about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to maintaining a productively distributed workforce.
This is a challenging, hot topic and, like you, we have many questions. Here’s more about the two women we invited to provide the answers.
Mathilde Collin, co-founder and CEO at Front, a customer communications platform, is known for her values-driven leadership style and for championing radical transparency from above. Since the company’s inception in 2014, Collin has raised more than $138 million in venture capital funding, including a Series D round of $65 million last month.
Collin mentors aspiring entrepreneurs through All Raise’s Female Founders Office Hours and the Pioneer Fund. She has been recognized in Forbes Next Billion-Dollar Startups 2019, Inc Magazine’s Female Founders 100 2019 and Forbes 30 Under 30: Enterprise Tech 2017.
Adriana Roche is the chief people officer at Mural, a collaborative intelligence company with more than 900 people working remotely in 29 countries. She leads a team responsible for recruiting, growing and developing team members.
Prior to Mural, Roche was vice president of people and places at Segment, where she led a team that grew the company’s workforce tenfold over the course of nearly five years and earned Segment multiple awards as the best place to work.
Previously, Roche held recruiting roles at Google, Salesforce and Dropbox, where she led distributed SaaS teams experiencing a steep growth curve. She is fluent in English, Spanish and French and holds a master’s degree in organizational psychology from NYU.
