UFC Legend St-Pierre to Help Insight ‘Supercharge Your Workforce’ at Webinar

Insight Canada virtual event focuses on building modern workplaces and empowering workers with the right technology

TEMPE, Ariz., December 3, 2021 Today’s digitally driven business world needs the right connections to let work heroes unleash their full powers.

Insight Enterprises (NASDAQ:NSIT), the global integrator of Insight Intelligent Technology Solutions™ that maximize the value of IT, welcomes UFC superman and Marvel supervillain Georges St-Pierre as it hosts a Supercharge Your Workforce webinar Wednesday at 2 p.m. EST, exploring how the modern workplace can produce office superheroes when equipped with the right technology.

During the virtual event, John Dathan, Insight Canada senior vice president and general manager, will hold a candid discussion with St-Pierre about developing his personal and professional values in becoming a peak performer.

St-Pierre, a two-division champion in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is known as one of the world's best pound-for-pound mixed martial arts fighters and all-around athletes. He will share how technology has helped shape a top-caliber career spanning the octagon and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“When most people hear professional fighting, technology does not immediately come to mind. But modern applications and computing cross over into all industries, such as high-performance fitness training with wearable devices and advanced analytics or the CGI in superhero movies,” said Dathan. “If we’ve learned anything over the last two years of massive change, it’s that no matter what type of work you do, peak performance usually is fueled by top technology.”

Discussing the modern workplace, Sébastien Rossignol, a Lenovo national sales specialist of workstations, also will speak during the webinar about why Lenovo’s ThinkStation P620, the only workstation powered by AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO, is ideal for those who demand more power for today’s multi-threaded applications.

About Great Place to Work® and How It Determines the Best Workplaces in Technology List in Singapore  

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, they have surveyed more than 100 million employees around the world and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust.

Great Place to Work identified the Best Workplaces by analyzing technology companies’ workplace programs and surveying all their employees in Singapore (for companies with a staff strength of less than 5,000) about the key factors that create great workplaces for all. 

Employees are invited to respond to 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a great place to work for all, demonstrating how the company has empowered the individuals to reach their full human potential. 85% of the evaluation is based on what employees report about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organisation, no matter who they are or what they do. GPTW analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce makeup, and what’s typical in the technology sector. The remainder of the evaluation is an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of the company’s values, people’s ability to contribute new ideas, and the effectiveness of their leaders to ensure they’re consistently experienced. 

 To ensure surveys truly represent all employees, GPTW requires enough people in each organization to respond that results are accurate to a 95% confidence level and 5% margin of error or better. GPTW reviews any anomalies in survey responses, news and financial performance to ensure there aren’t any extraordinary reasons to believe it couldn’t trust a company’s survey results.
