Staying current on what is happening in the business and the tech world is important. We don’t have to convince business owners of this. They are some of the hardest working people we know. No matter what industry you work in, learning and growing is critical to your success. This is especially important in the world of technology. Things change at a moments notice and if you don’t have a trusted partner you can rely on, it is easy to get overwhelmed.
Here are a few ideas that can make learning fun.
- Learning Should be a Part of Your Business Culture – At Protek, we hold a weekly office meeting and the techs hold a daily tech huddle to make sure that everyone is staying on top of what is going on with our client’s accounts. Every business we work with has different needs, so having a culture of learning and growing is critical to all of our success. If your company isn’t offering some way for your teams to learn, make that a priority today.
- Staying Up to Date on Change – There is always groundbreaking news that comes out and can be helpful to your business. Find a source that will keep you in the know about your industry and especially technology. We love Silicon Slopes, The Verge, Security Week, and The New York Times Bits.
- Listen to Podcasts – If you are looking to stay in the know about security, we like listening to The Security Current, and for local tech news, we enjoy listening to Silicon Slopes podcast.
- Networking Events and Conferences – As an IT company, we feel it is in the best interest of our company and clients to stay on top of the products and services that we offer. Our team attends as many conferences, training, and events that we can to make sure we bring the best offerings and value to our clients.
Being a lifelong learner is so important, especially in business. Make learning a priority and invest in being the best you can be. It is what will make your business stand out from the rest.
