In this episode...
Our guest in our first episode, Alpana Wegner, took over as CFO of Benefitfocus, a leader in cloud-based software solutions for health care and benefits administrations, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and tackled the sudden realities of hybrid workforces and global market uncertainty from Day 1 on the job.
In this episode of “Future-Proofing the Office of the CFO,” I talk with Wegner about the evolving role of a CFO in today’s “new normal” and dissect her approaches to:
- – Re-thinking business practices as workforces shift to a hybrid model
- – Supporting remote employees with technology and empathy
- – The growing role of automation, robotics and analytics in finance departments
- – Re-anchoring to the new norms and needs of customers in a post-pandemic world
