“Of all of the leaders out there in all of our industries a full 85% don’t get beyond the self authoring stage.” – Ron West

Episode 69: What’s Next? | Balancing the Needs of Your Team and Your Business

Welcome to the first episode in our Status Go Series, What’s Next? There is no amount of emphasis we can put on the phrase “unprecedented times,” that would do justice to the quandary that is 2020.  We’ve seen IT leaders pivot, evolve and strategize to keep businesses running and even thriving at a record pace over the last 8-10 weeks; it has been inspiring.  Business as usual has taken on a new shape and is anything but solidified.  Yet, we find ourselves in a lull-state between the past and the future, most of us asking: What’s Next?

To answer that question, IT leaders will need to focus on 4 areas: Their company’s supply chain, their customers, themselves and their employees. In this episode Jeff Ton sits down with InterVision’s own Melanie Buergler, Director of Human Resources, to find out how to best balance the needs of your people and your business.
