Transforming The Employee Experience 
We recently sat down with David Belle-Isle, Symantec Sr. VP, Organizational Excellence, to discuss his vision of employee engagement, how it supports the company’s performance for all stakeholders, and why corporate responsibility is intimately related to these commitments.

Symantec 4.0 is what we're calling the transformation of our company, and we're guided by True North mindset. We have three key sets of stakeholders—employees, customers and partners, and shareholders—and True North means being clear about the experience we’re promising each of them in both the short and long term.

To meet this responsibility, we must excel on three levels: developing excellent products that protect and manage your information; partnering with nonprofit organizations and think tanks around the globe; and demonstrating thought leadership so that we can influence public policy on a national and international level.
