Spring 2021

Welcome!

Welcome back to another edition of PSCI's client newsletter, the IT Industry Rundown!
 
Like many of you, I'm tired of talking about the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, however, it's still a daily part of our lives. For how much longer, remains to be seen, but with the effectiveness and rapid scaling of vaccines, I'm optimistic.
 
So, in this edition of our quarterly newsletter, I'd like to focus on moving forward. Below you'll find articles, from various publications and industry leaders, on how to maintain high-performing IT teams, how to prepare for the possibility of a split workforce (onsite and remote teams), and why the lessons learned from the past year can help the IT industry diversify.

We lead off, though, with our latest client focused blog posts. In them, we reflect on how PSCI has handled the pandemic, share testimonials that reaffirm why PSCI is such a great business partner, and explain how PSCI can be of great benefit to your business (especially with IT hiring expected to rise).

I hope you find these articles both informative and inspiring as we continue to move forward together. As always, please remember to connect with us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook for the latest IT industry news and information.
