How New Technologies Will Change Your Hiring Decisions
How will technology change the skill sets needed for legacy positions in multifamily housing in the coming years? Old position descriptions for accountants, property managers, regional managers and other legacy positions seem outmoded as new technology requires know-how to interpret and communicate data. Even maintenance positions have been transformed by technology. Furthermore, the full value of business intelligence platforms, integrated accounting packages, investment management software and benchmarking databases will require different skill sets than have ever been required before. The session will describe the team member of the future and address how labor costs will be affected.
