Tech trends in financial workplace go under the microscope

At the upcoming Financial Workplace New York conference, a series of leading speakers are set to examine the impact of emerging technology and workplace apps on the world of finance

The WORKTECH event series returns to New York on 16 February 2023 for a Financial Workplace conference, hosted by BNY Mellon. The day is set to be an in-depth investigation into how the finance industry is being transformed by new technologies and a shift towards hybrid and remote working. 

Alejandro Perez, Chief Administrative Officer at BNY Mellon stated that “We look forward to welcoming the financial workplace community to Bank of New York Mellon for a fantastic day of learning, networking, and discussion about the future of work”. 

Here are some sessions to look out for: 

Emerging technologies 

Moderated by futurist and CEO of UnWork Philip Ross, an expert panel will dive into the world of remote working and the role of technology in enabling a hybrid workforce. Collecting and leveraging data in the workplace has never been so crucial to informing decision-making and ensuring that teams are working together productively. Panel experts, including Hans Brown, Global Head of Enterprise Innovation at BNY Mellon, will share how their companies are utilising technology in order to create a great workplace experience. 

Workplace engagement apps 

In the battle to bring employees back to the office, companies are asking how technology can help attract and retain top talent by streamlining the workplace experience and making the office more attractive, productive and inclusive. Moderated by Andrew Unmans, VP and Head of Strategy at Modo Labs, and featuring speakers such as Grace Lai and Martin VergaraII from Morgan Stanley and Gabrielle Fink, formerly at HSBC, this expert panel will take a look at how major companies have rolled out their workplace apps. The panel will share the trials and tribulations of integrating new technology into their offices as well as their success stories. 

What’s next for hybrid integration? 

In another dynamic expert panel, Peter Miscovich, Managing Director of JLL, will lead a deep dive into the intricacies of hybrid integration and how smart workplace technologies are transforming the financial services sector. Speaking about the panel Miscovich stated that “Our session will explore Hybrid Workplace integration and the important lessons learned and what may be coming next”. 

With speakers such as Bruce Lerner, Head of Corporate Real Estate & Workplace Services at Zurich Insurance and Michael Przytula, Managing Director – Intelligent & Digital Workplaces, Accenture, this session will take a closer look at the strategies and approaches that have been successful in 2022 and look ahead to how they might prove transformative in 2023.
