Plenary Stage

When Brittany Pietsch, former account exectuvive at Cloudfare, posted a video of her termination – it went viral – sparking passionate debates about employer transparency, hiring practices, firing procedures, employee loyalty, and overall well-being. Regardless of industry, employees and their employers operate within the framework of a broad “contract”—informal, implicit agreements based on trust, reciprocal commitments and expectations. These unwritten contracts have evolved and shifted over decades.In today's modern world, where five generations of workers coexist, each has unique motivations, aspirations, and career goals contributing to a nuanced understanding of the existing contract. Join Brittany along with Marcus Sawyer and Bryan Power who will share their unique perspectives from mutual obligations and expectations to the shifting beliefs across generations, and examine how these two parties can find common ground as they enter this “contractual” relationship with one another.
