My guest this week on the Future of Work podcast is Xavier Unkovic, Global President at Mars Drinks. Mars Drinks is a segment of the global Mars brand, which focuses specifically on drinks such as coffees, teas and the like. You may wonder why a beverage company is so interested in the future of work, but Mars Drinks is 100% focused on the workplace. Their products and solutions are for the workplace. Internally, Mars Drinks has been doing some very interesting things lately including the design of a brand new office space in Westchester, Pennsylvania. The focus of this podcast with Xavier is how to create a culture of innovation, and we take a closer look at what Mars Drinks is doing including the creation of “coffee shop culture.” Xavier also shares his insights on a host of topics such as how the workplace is changing, and management and leadership. We even cover the impact that food and drink might have on how we collaborate and get one’s job done. Xavier gives us his perspective on how innovation has changed over the years and shares some of the cool things he is doing at Mars Drinks. Xavier is clearly passionate about his work. Don’t miss this really great and interesting conversation with Xavier Unkovic on fostering innovation.
