Diversity is more than just a box ticking exercise – it’s at the core of what drives innovation at VMware. Those were some of Joe Baguley’s first thoughts in our latest episode of Carpool Tech Talk.

Joe discussed the importance of having a diverse workforce, from the value of having different employee experiences to the benefits that come with having one’s own mindset challenged. His guest for this drive was Andrew McLean, analyst and CTO at Compare the Cloud.

Expanding on diversity, Joe talked about how excited he was to see the IT sector embrace the advantages of diversity and inclusion, particularly as the industry comes up against the challenge of needing the right skills to enact digital transformation. He also highlighted Andrew’s own route into the industry; initially working in psychology, he then ran an IT company before becoming an analyst, a slightly different journey to the norm.

Together, they discussed the challenges behind digital transformation, with Andrew citing a statistic that said only 40% of companies had done or were in the process of transforming. So, what are the barriers, and what are businesses getting right?
