In our last issue of GSG Vision back in October of 2021, we focused on Diversity & Inclusion, market updates, return to office efforts, perspectives on the talent market and most of all collaboration. Now that the new year is upon us, GSG continues to put the emphasis on collaboration as the key driver of success, providing insights and thought leadership on the importance of taking an intentional approach to collaboration.
With remote and hybrid work structures still prominent, the natural process of collaboration that occurs with physical co-location has gone out the window (literally), and we have to be more mindful of what it really takes to execute, helping our teams develop the interpersonal skills and techniques required to collaborate.
In the coming months we will be publishing original content and aggregating shared content on our new Collaboration landing page on our website, to encourage learning, enthusiasm and team building through what we’re calling the five pillars of collaboration. Trust, Innovation, Communication, Knowledge Sharing and Execution. These are the foundational elements of true collaboration.
We all have a choice to make as we enter the third year of the pandemic. Team GSG is choosing to turn the page and write a new story that is based on collaboration with employees, clients, and the communities where we work and live.
In the spirit of that collaboration, I am thrilled to have our newest Executive Director, Satish Subramanian, take the wheel and share his thoughts on what he sees as the major themes coming out of 2021 as we turn the page to a new year. In addition to leading our own internal client experience initiative and supporting large banking clients, Satish leads our Transformation and Marketing practice areas.
I hope you enjoy what Satish has to say and I wish you a Very Happy New Year and all the best to come for your family, your organization, and your community. We have a lot of work to do. Let’s get to it!
All my best,
John Henning is the Chief Client Officer at Granite Solutions Groupe. He has over 35 years of leadership experience in the financial services and technology industries, and currently oversees all client account management, professional services, marketing strategy, business development and sales operations for GSG.
