Course Description

Over the past two years, those managing firms have witnessed technology serve as a powerful enabler. Firms that have adopted the “new normal” have accelerated; maximizing performance and flexibility, enabling scalable growth, retained, and gained staff, improved bottom lines from reduced operating costs, and enhanced overall customer experience.  

Following the tectonic shift to remote work, firms find themselves no longer limited to any one geographical location. Offering a flexible work from anywhere environment to help promote work-life balance, including the technology experience to support those needs, plays a key role in talent recruitment and retention, office moves, mergers, and acquisitions, and sets the groundwork for more strategic IT planning and growth.  

This 60-minute MAPCast will arm participants with tips and best practices that can be brought into their firms to better support a flexible workforce, manage IT security, and enhance the firm’s overall technology experience for both staff and clients.
