In our fourth and final episode of our Business Agility series, we speak with Lincoln Christiansen, president of Link Source IT based in Springfield, Oregon. Founded in 2016, Link Source IT is an enterprise IT solutions provider, servicing small and mid-size companies with cloud, security and information management services.
In the midst of dealing with business lags due to shelter-at-home mandates, Lincoln shares some details about managing through these challenging times, and how his team’s focus right now is on supporting local communities with simple initiatives that build brand and customer loyalties.
Following are a few posts surrounding the value of local small businesses, their supporting efforts to ease stresses and the value of “acting locally:”
