Cisco and The Power of Teams

Where is it that we do our best work? Where do we produce results for our customers? Where do we innovate? Where do we experience our company culture?  In teams. Through the power of teams, we find success as a company. When we get teams right, we win and so do our customers.  At Cisco we’re taking bold new steps in the world of HR. We got rid of stack ranks and labels, and we’re laser focused on the power of our teams. We’re committed to making the best Cisco experience for our people, and our customers.  We’re creating a space where our people get to play to their strengths every day, and where our leaders know what team excellence looks like and have the tools to scale that across the company.  We have the unique opportunity to Connect Everything, Innovate Everywhere, and Benefit Everyone.  And we’re doing that through the power of our teams.
