The future of work will never be the same and top of mind for every leader in every company. How can I empower my teams to be successful working remotely? How can we ensure my digital business is secure as employees are working in an AirBnB? How can my employees feel safe when they do visit the office?

We believe that as Cisco, we are uniquely positioned to empower organizations to answer these questions. We are going to take amazing pieces of technology across Collaboration, Security and Enterprise Networking and make it easy for organizations to empower their future of work.

Cisco's Strategic Execution Office is an organization that achieves enterprise-wide success by synchronously executing across Cisco's 6 strategic pillars, which are: Secure, Agile Networks, Future of Work, Optimized Application Experience, Internet for the Future, End-to-end Security, and Capabilities at the Edge. In addition to the 6 strategic pillars, we have 2 horizontal pillars driving cross-functional change, which are: Evolved GTM and RTM for Growth and Business Cadence. The Strategic Execution Office's mandate is to partner with the Executive Leadership Team, General Managers, and functional leaders to accelerate execution on the company's overall strategy.

Why Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference. Here's how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think we're "old" (30 years strong!) and only about hardware, but we're also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company. An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do - you can't put us in a box!

But "Digital Transformation" is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don't care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? That's cool.
