The webcast, Leveraging The Power of Intelligent Automation to Create The Ultimate Digital Workforce, is scheduled to air on November 16, 2022 at 3:00 P.M. ET on, the largest media resource in the multifamily housing industry.

Leveraging The Power of Intelligent Automation to Create The Ultimate Digital Workforce will deliver a comprehensive overview of the latest state of the labor market and its effect on businesses. The webcast will delve into how today’s workforce seeks meaningful work that has purpose and sees no value in their skills being wasted on redundant tasks. The segment also explores the latest trends in automation to supplement staff and reduce turnover rates.

“In order to succeed in the current marketplace, property managers need to implement a human-led technology approach to strengthen the capabilities of their workforce,” Kirby explained. “Change has never moved faster, but along with that change comes the need to revise our strategies and transform outdated processes to mitigate risk, ensure continuity, and meet commitments.”

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional, and the author of SmartMatch Alliances.

As with all the material we produce, we strive to deliver relevant, straightforward information to our audience, so they can better prepare for the next wave of developments taking place.”

“The world has changed dramatically, and its effects are felt across every business and industry imaginable,” Kirby concluded. “Onsite teams are spread thin, and finding qualified staff is even more of a challenge in today’s market. Given the immense size of the modern-day rental market, it is crucial that multifamily housing operators remove as many barriers as possible, not only for their renters, but their workforce. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers.”
