When a small business owner holds the image of success in their head, what comes to mind?
The concept — and deployment — of digital transformation strategies across industries has taken the modern workplace by storm. With high-priority tech initiatives on every boardroom table, more companies than ever are looking for competent IT talent that can help them transform the way they do business. The problem, however, is that 69% of leaders at the forefront of digital change can’t hire the talent they need, keeping them from staying abreast of technology.
As more businesses transition to a more digital operational environment, the need to protect data is escalating. And, while over half of small businesses claim it would take them three months to recover from a disaster, over 75% of them don’t have a disaster plan in place. And that’s unfortunate since downtime can cost companies up to $300,000 per hour.
As more states rescind their ongoing mask mandates and businesses and schools look toward reopening fully soon, many are concerned about the uncertainty that the new procedures will bring to the table. Even vaccinated individuals are at risk of catching — and spreading — the virus. The vaccine only offers boosted immunity, not protection against contracting the virus.
