Here’s What Works for Accounting Firms on Retaining Your Best Employees

Episode 49. In today’s practical episode, the Accounting Influencers Podcast hosts Martin Bissett and Rob Brown offer ways for accounting firms to keep their best people.

Key takeaways include:

➯ The problem for accounting firms who can’t pay their employees the big money that some of their competitors are

➯ The kind of talent accountancy firm leaders should be trying to retain, especially in the 25-45 age range

➯ What happens to accounting practices who don’t take talent retention seriously

➯ The importance of a clear career path that’s not time-bound for young accounting talent

➯ Why accounting leaders must consider the working environment and arrangements they are offering their employees

➯ What makes people stay with an accounting firm and what gives them a reason to leave

➯ How ’empowerment’ works in attracting and keeping high quality staff in an accounting firm

➯ The responsibility of employees to dictate their own terms where possible and have their hands on the steering wheel of their career


Every Thursday the show gives you a practical ‘here’s what works’ summary of a key challenge, need or strategy for accountants, CPAs and bookkeepers.
