Early in September, I wrote about how companies can remain true to their culture in the fast-paced digital age. The piece was featured in the Financial Post.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“Digital will create the new corporate winners and losers, regardless of incumbency. It will create the largest labour displacement and migration in modern times.

OpenText’s culture, soul and vision lie at the heart of every aspect of our corporate mission: To enable the digital world. We help organizations digitize their information and business processes to gain competitive advantage and provide a holistic view of their operations. It’s a formula that’s continued to work for us amid unprecedented change and digital disruption, and it’s no coincidence it comes from a company with Canada at its core.”
