The IT Company is About Trust
Choosing an IT provider you can trust is so valuable. At The IT Company, we are humbled to be someone you can count on. We recently completed a case study for one of our customers, Team Technologies. Prior to making a switch to The IT Company, they were spending their time on dealing with IT issues, that continually interfered with their productivity. Networks not working with one another, network printing issues and various other issues that had been unresolved for years. After taking over their IT department, we were able to become a trusted extension of their team making their IT work for them, not against them and help optimize their business outcomes.
Opportunities and Challenges for Non-Profits Presented by COVID-19
At The IT Company we have years of experience providing IT services to local non-profit organizations. Now more than ever, non-profits are working vigorously to fill the gaps for children and people all over. Like all industries, COVID-19 has presented unique opportunities and challenges for non-profits. In another webinar discussion, Kenneth Herring spoke with Brent Waugh of Big Brothers Big Sistersand Nicole Chandler of The Change Center, to hear how they are managing the changes presented. Both Brent and Nicole shared the best advice they have for non-profits.
- Take care of your people. Check in frequently with your staff. How they are doing and how you can help them is so important.
- Lean on your board for suggestions, ideas and help.
- Practice self-care. Set aside time for yourself. Create boundaries of your work and personal life. In the business of serving others, you have to fill your own cup before you can fill other’s.
- Keep up the good work. None of this is easy and there are so many challenges, but the non-profit community has such a platform to step up here.
Listen to the full discussion to hear more about what non-profits are doing and how our community can help.
