LCIA’s Next Interactive Workshop Will Help Businesses Use Data to Improve Operations

The next Every Hat Entrepreneur Series workshop, “Using Your Data to Improve Business Operations”, will be held at The Irish House on March 25th. The interactive, half-day workshops designed for the jack-of-all-trades business owner and the all-hands-on-deck small business team.

Every Hat WorkshopHosted by LCIA, the Member Services of LCI Workers’ Comp, the workshop will focus on sharing how data management is a relevant tool that businesses of all sizes can utilize and profit from.

“While small-business owners may get overwhelmed with big data, they should still consider gathering and using this information,” says Dan Newman, President of Broadsuite in an article in Entrepreneur. “The reason being is that as the business expands, the data pile is also increasing significantly. When all this data is sorted properly and analyzed, it reveals many important aspects of the business that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.”
