Swift’s work leverages data analytics, a healthy dose of pragmatism, and a humanist view of the workplace. A fast-moving world requires changes to the work we do, shifts in the skills and behaviors required to do that work, and fundamental re-sets on many different ways of working, she argues. In her 2023 book, Work Here Now, Swift delivers a roadmap to better work and explores different ways to improve the growth-impeding management practices we’ve created and endured.
As the former Transformation Leader at Mercer US and Canada, Mercer was responsible for workforce transformation, HR transformation, HR digitization, DEI, and workforce analytics. As a recognized thought leader on the subject of the future of work post-covid, she has been quoted on the subject in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, The Economist, The Washington Post, Axios, and The Daily Mail, and has appeared on NPR and Al-Jazeera English. Earlier in her career, Swift helped build businesses in the ESG transformation space, including launching the Sustainability Services and Cleantech practices at Deloitte, and conducting two landmark carbon credit derivatives trades at Deutsche Bank.
