In the post-pandemic economy, many small business owners are having trouble getting back to “business as usual.” A big part of that challenge has been attracting talent. According to National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg, “Main Street is doing better as state and local restrictions are eased, but finding qualified labour is a critical issue for small businesses nationwide. Small business owners have been competing with the pandemic and increased unemployment benefits that are keeping some workers out of the labor force."
Staffing internal IT can be particularly challenging in the face of increased reluctance to return to the workforce and greater incentives offered by employers. At the same time, with growing complexity and accelerating security threats, qualified IT staff is more important than ever. Many have found that partnering with a managed service provider (MSP) helps them get back on track quickly and with confidence.
When hiring an MSP, you’re doing more than purchasing a product or solution that you hope will meet your IT needs. You’re gaining the expertise, guidance, and advice needed to find the right products for where your business is now, and where it’s headed — with the aim of delivering the greatest return on investment. A good MSP also has established outstanding relationships with vendors and will advocate for you and with the supply chain shortages we are experiencing across all industries, that is extremely valuable. All the heavy lifting of researching and vetting the solutions provided is the MSP’s responsibility.
