Your Success Is Our Success

That’s why we supplement our knowledge by asking exactly what challenges IT and HR organizations face today. And we love to share what we learn so you become an educated consumer and confident leader.

Two exciting initiatives focus on providing IT and HR leaders with information from their peers to help them shape their agendas.

First, a national version of our Regional CIO Survey launched October 19, 2016 through our partners at Premier CIO. If you are an IT leader outside of Pittsburgh, please take it today and look for the national white paper in early December.

Additionally, we know that HR is a complex, ever-changing organization faced with challenges like never before. Together with our partners at the Pittsburgh Technology Council, we wanted to hear all about it.

Join us November 16th for a breakfast panel at the Rivers Club to hear the results of our 2016 HR Leadership Survey. RSVP information coming soon.

Want to see how our customers have changed the way they work?
