Designing Career Pathways for Non-Traditional Talent
Firm leaders are addressing capacity challenges by designing new roles within their workstream. They are hiring roles that don't always align with the traditional model of accounting and tax skills. These less-traditional roles come alongside their fellow accounting and tax professionals so they can each function at their highest and best use. However, the current path to advancement in most firms doesn't provide clear opportunities for non-accounting or non-CPA professionals. To retain and develop these important non-traditional team members, it is time to reimagine the career "ladder" or "lattice" and compensation structure. In this session, we will:
- Recognize the value of integrating operational and administrative resources into delivery teams to drive efficiency
- Identify the roles and responsibilities non-traditional talent can fulfill within CPA firms to create capacity for accounting and tax professionals
- Analyze methods to elevate non-accounting and non-CPA professionals
- Develop compensation structures that motivate and reward contributions
Leave this session with ideas for non-traditional roles in your firm.
