What are the Benefits of Hiring Certified IT Professionals?
It’s crucial for small- and mid-size business to allocate their IT budget wisely. Getting support from the right IT service provider can make a huge difference in your workflow and can result in business benefits.
Improved efficiency: You want your IT problems solved fast. A recent survey, which explored the value of IT certifications, found that professionals with a certification were 90% more productive and 60% more efficient compared to those without a certification.
Reduced risk: Certifications are indicative of the expertise and knowledge of a professional. IT professionals with the right skills and experience can identify potential problems and risks better and provide appropriate solutions and mitigation actions.
Reduced cost: One of the big challenges of IT services providers is high staff rotation. It’s expensive to hire and retain talent. Statistics show that employees with certifications tend to stay with organizations longer. If your IT service provider can keep its staff rotation low, it means they can provide you with rates that are more competitive along with a more experienced staff.
