As a leader, “Does my team trust me?” is a question to ask on a regular basis. Trust isn’t inherent. It must be earned and shared. As a leader working with technology professionals in the midst of a talent shortage, earning the trust of your team becomes even more imperative. Tech execs play a pivotal role in the success of their team, overall workplace satisfaction, and ultimately, retention. Because of this, trust has always been a core value for our company. ESP has learned that implementing trust tactics not only is essential for doing business with our clients, but it also helps foster positive relationships within our in-office team, and with our consultants.
The IT field evolves at a rate at which few businesses can ever hope to keep pace. Mobility has become a key factor within what used to be a highly contained internal environment. Additionally, the demand for solutions that allow access to advanced resources and capabilities, regardless of an employee’s location, has also shifted the priorities within the IT landscape.
To meet the demands of today’s work environment, IT teams need an open mind toward the advances in cloud solutions and mobile technology in order to provide the solutions of tomorrow, today.
