FLEXWORK Coalition to focus on the future of work

Palo Alto Networks, Box, Splunk, Uber and Zoom today announced the FLEXWORK Coalition, bringing together industry leaders to focus on the future of work and accelerate the development of new employee-centric work practices around employee choice and flexibility.

The Coalition is a community that’s reimagining the workplace of the future, including areas such as physical work location, learning and development, leadership and employee benefits. It seeks to help guide companies forward today as well as beyond the pandemic.

“COVID has required all of us to be nimble, and has shown us the resilience that our organizations and people have to adapt to changing circumstances,” said Nikesh Arora, chairman and CEO, Palo Alto Networks. “It has also highlighted areas of opportunity where we can bring about workplace change sooner. We all agree: The future of work requires us to be adaptable and shift towards more employee choice and flexibility – in everything from work location, to benefits, to learning.”

The FLEXWORK Coalition brings together companies with shared values and goals to develop perspectives, approaches and solutions, and share the results.

Driven by chief people officers and executive leadership, the Coalition will create case studies and share learnings, culminating in an industry playbook to help business leaders navigate this climate while fostering a supportive, safe, productive and inclusive workplace for their employees. Case studies already developed by the companies include:

  • Palo Alto Networks: Reimagining Learning: Sales Kick Off in a Virtual World
  • Zoom: Onboarding Case Study
  • Box: Reimagining Company Learning in a Virtual World
  • Splunk: Virtual Splunktern Program

During Zoomtopia, the chief people officers from the founding companies shared their experiences and the work each company has done so far.
