Course Description

The #1 challenge for the accounting industry is staffing. The Big 4 & larger firms leveraged offshore staffing to acquire and retain qualified and experienced professionals in emerging economies at a very cost effective pricing point. Yet, the small, mid-size & regional accounting firms couldn’t follow in their footsteps. This webinar delves deep into how technology has enabled remote working in the 21st century and its impact on accounting industry. Furthermore, we will deep dive into how you can gain access to a huge talent pool, how the hiring is similar to hiring any local employee and how it is not outsourcing. Moreover, we’ll cover benefits including how things work even after coming from different time-zones and how the operations can be as secure as it were from your own office.
