CEO and Founder Martin Joseph shares what makes 360IT Partners an attractive place to work.
What makes your company an employer of choice? Our staff see working in IT as more than just a career. We all appreciate the ability of technology to improve our quality of life and lead ‘tech-life’ lifestyles.
What strategies do you have to retain your employees? We have found that by creating a supportive environment and a well-defined culture, we have created a company where people want to work.
What are you doing to develop employees and help them grow? With free technical training for certifications and test reimbursement available, our team members always have free access to training for the fast-paced and ever-changing technology landscape that comes with being an IT professional. .
Are you hiring? We’re always looking for talented people who live the “tech life” and have a deep desire to help others do the same.
How has COVID-19 affected your workplace? Lessons learned? COVID-19 has only reinforced what we already believe: work is an activity, not a place. We had a work from home strategy within hours of deciding not to have anyone in our offices. I was so proud of our team for continuing to provide the high caliber service that our customers have come to expect from us! One lesson COVID has taught us is that the employee-to-employee connection we’ve spent decades cultivating in our culture is absolutely part of our “secret sauce.” Being out of the office was for our health and safety, but we learned that our team members miss each other, which, as a leader, makes me proud of how we’ve built our team.
360IT Partners provides “IT as a Service” for small and medium businesses.
