CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) has launched a new Webinar series to help its members focus on strategies and tactics for operating a successful business.
The “What Every Integrator Needs to Know” series will take place every third Tuesday of the month and will focus on topics ranging from tax code changes to contract requirements, wages and payments to disruptive technologies.
Upcoming sessions include:
- January 15: Tax Strategies for 2013
Protect your 2013 earnings by understanding the key tax code changes and the impact they will have on your business. Understand the 3.8% Medicare tax, changes to capital gains, AMT and much more. Hear from experts at McGladrey, LLP and Deborah Gulick of Entrepreneurial Services Group, LLC.
- February 19: Ensuring Proper Payment for Hours Worked
The number of lawsuits on wage and hour issues indicates that many employers have difficulty applying the state and federal regulations. Common problems involve failing to record all working time, failing to pay for break or meal periods, and wrongly classifying employees as exempt — all of which can result in unpaid overtime. This presentation will discuss some of the most commonly misunderstood laws regarding overtime, working time, and related compensation issues such as ensuring the integrity of payroll records.
- March 19: Business Transformation
This seminar will address how and why the traditional integrators’ business model must be transformed for long-term growth and sustainability. Details on how to make the transformation from a “product sales driven” organization to a “service driven” organization will be discussed. Finally, case studies of organizations that have successfully made the transformation will be made, and tips of traps and pitfalls to avoid will also be shared.
Additional topics throughout 2013 include:
- 10 Outrageous Contract Requirements
- Attracting & Retaining Employees
- Measuring Business Intelligence
- Protecting Intellectual Property
- Developing Visions for Scope & Scalability
- Government Policies & Regulations
- Disruptive Technologies for 2014
