As we near the end of busy season, for many it’s a time to a take a break and get a much needed rest with time off for vacation with family and friends. Others will be planning ahead to attend professional continuing education programs (CPE) to gain specialized industry training and skills.
For HR, it is a time of year when we kick into high gear to ensure that performance, coaching and development is occurring real time, with collective and thoughtful feedback being delivered to members of our team. It is also a time to hear from each person about the many accomplishments they have achieved this year. In the form of their own self-assessment they chart the skills and proficiencies they have gained which pave the way for advancement and promotion to the next level.
Public Accounting is a profession where an individual has the chance to be challenged with extraordinary learning opportunities. They have the ability to actively gain leadership skills under the direction of our highly knowledgeable partners and managers who are sought after subject matter experts in their fields.
