Show Notes

‘Companies don’t know how to manage people who are remote because they don't know how to manage people that are actually onsite either.’

On this episode of The Shape of Work podcast, our guest is Susan L. Lang, CEO of XIL Health - a health technology company building complex predictive analytics platforms to reduce the cost of drugs.

Having been a part of the healthcare industry for over three decades, Susan has advised top pharmacy executives and digital healthcare startups while working as the C-suite Executive at Express Scripts and Chief Strategy Officer of Blink Health.

With a background that extensive, it’s no surprise this episode covers a lot of ground.

We discuss with Susan:

  • Hiring virtually, beyond geographies: the new normal
  • The structure and lines of communication at XIL Health
  • Great resignation hits IT departments: why companies need to switch strategies and run 'The Great Experiment'
  • Tech talent retention strategies: profit sharing, retention bonus, ESOPs and more
