Hiring the best qualified candidates is surely an important job for any business. But diversity is also a good thing for many businesses. Studies have shown that diverse teams outperform their peers and are more likely to be successful, due to the broader skill sets and perspectives that are brought to the table. During EisnerAmper’s webcast series “CAPstone: Shattering the Tech Ceiling: Part II – Baretz+Brunelle,” a trio of panelists discussed the need for companies to embrace a diverse workforce, especially in technology.
- Poonam Jain, chief operating officer, Baretz+Brunelle
- Denise Finney, partner, EisnerAmper
- Rahul Mahna, partner, EisnerAmper (moderator)
The panelists addressed the following topics:
Women are underrepresented in the technology industry. For those interested in pursuing a career in the space, it is important to stay on top of technology changes and also believe in their capabilities since it is not easy to make a mark in the sector.
Companies need to communicate with each other and their clients in order to run efficiently. Technology is a great tool for communicating because it allows businesses to keep in touch with one another no matter how far away they are. Software technologies including Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and Asana can be used to enhance collaboration.
Managed technology services has also helped companies by making it easier for them to connect with customers. For example, if a customer is looking for information about something, they can go online rather than calling or emailing the company directly because there is a lot of information available online that can be accessed at any time from any location.
It’s not just about getting everyone on the same page, but also about making sure that everyone has access to the information they need when they need it.
Project management software is essential for business. Products like Asana make it easy to track what everyone is working on, when they’re supposed to be doing it, whether they’ve completed their tasks and how much progress they’ve made.
An outsourced IT provider is an organization that provides the tools, knowledge and expertise to ensure success in the digital economy. Such providers are experts in cybersecurity, cloud computing and other technologies.
Lastly, the panelists concluded by saying that cybersecurity, processes, and technological advancement are essential in today’s world.
