Manhattan Beach, California, Jan. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leapgen, a digital transformation company shaping the future of work, is proud to announce Jess Von Bank has joined its growing leadership team as Head of Marketing. Von Bank will focus on shaping thought leadership and fostering conversation designed to educate and empower today’s enterprises and solution providers who need to design and deliver a modern, compelling workforce experience.

“The pressure has never been greater to respond to a rapidly evolving landscape of workforce experience,” says Von Bank. “The digital revolution and all it entails could be the beginning of the next industrial revolution, and it’s coming faster than previous revolutions came about. The future of work is not something you can wave a magic technology wand over, if there was such a thing. Organizations can only thrive when they adopt a growth mindset, when they look holistically at the people and process readiness required, when they thoughtfully approach transformation across the enterprise, and when we architect technology in a way that can deliver and sustain the outcomes organizations need in order to grow and thrive.”

The answer is not to catch up to a fast-moving world; the answer is to move with it. There is a critical need to educate the market from all points of view - workforce, enterprise, and vendor. “The rate of change outside our industry is happening exponentially faster than inside our industry, and that has to end,” says Jason Averbook, CEO and Co-Founder of Leapgen. “What Leapgen and the industry need now is direction and proof of value; connecting the dots in such a way that brings brands, customers and solutions to life. Jess brings this to Leapgen based on her experience in our industry and creative approach to storytelling. Adding Jess to the Leapgen family supports our mission to drive the industry forward.”

Von Bank is also the Global Director of FuelWork, a community of human resources and technology professionals focused on digital transformation of workplace and employee experience. Through FuelWork, Von Bank drives content, community, and events in markets around the globe in order to fuel connections and conversation between practitioners, solution providers, and consultants.
