CHICAGO and LOS ANGELES, CA, December 22, 2020 — Netrix, LLC, a leading, national provider of IT managed and professional services with a core focus on the Microsoft ecosystem, today announced the acquisition of the Microsoft Consulting and Managed Services Business Unit of Prosum, Inc. The acquisition expands Netrix’s presence on the West Coast, deepens its IT managed services business, and strengthens its Microsoft services practice and partnership.
The aftermath of COVID-19 has led to record unemployment, flooding the talent pool with a lot more candidates.
This might lead to a tempting, but misleading conclusion that hiring is now easier. Unfortunately, that is not likely the case.
Before you dive headfirst into the candidate pool, take a step back to ensure you have the bandwidth and structure in place to screen through the influx of candidates.
Companies across the globe have been forced to reevaluate their operations. The impact of COVID-19 introduced a stark new reality that caught many unaware and unprepared.
So, we turned to a few of our partners for their insight. We wanted to know how leaders across various industries are adapting to working remotely or from home.
The repercussions of COVID-19 have sent shockwaves through nearly every industry, affecting millions of lives. But despite popular belief, there are still organizations hiring. Now instead of showing up for an in-person interview, interviews are being conducted over video.
For the second year in a row, Prosum has worked with our partners to host workshops for students in the community. Along with Prosum volunteers, our friends at Microsoft and City of Los Angeles gave their time and resources to run workshops for students from Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy, Santa Monica High School, and East Los Angeles College.
Our new office is located at 3990 Westerly Place, Suite 100 in beautiful Newport Beach, California!
The Orange County team was excited to move from the 8th floor of a high-rise in favor of a more welcoming, ground-level space where visitors no longer need to worry about a validated parking lot.
Less than two years after opening Prosum’s Denver office, we have packed up and are settling into a larger office space to accommodate our growing team and client base. The new Denver office is 5 times the size of the old space, allowing us to better serve our clients and provide a more collaborative working environment for our current and future team members.
While helping clients discover technology solutions is Prosum’s expertise, we are also passionate about helping the children of Nepal. So when we discovered a need for laptops in empty school computer labs we knew we wanted to help.
And help we did.
This past weekend Prosum volunteered at L.A. Works Day 2015, Los Angeles’ largest day of service! This year’s day of service was a lovely mix of 300 gallons of paint, 40 yards of mulch, 200 shovels and over a thousand corporate and community volunteers who came together to transform South East L.A!
Team Prosum arrived at the event bright and early to help the event run smoothly by setting up tables, chairs, and signage.
Prosum hosted a resume writing workshop for the Roosevelt High School’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Pathways and i.am College Track program. Over 20 students attended the workshop, undeterred by the prom festivities the night before!
Mentors from Prosum discussed possible career paths in STEAM and also shared their own stories.
