Benchmarking and Best Practices Survey
At ConvergenceCoaching®, LLC, we’re passionate about remote, hybrid and flexible work – what we call Anytime, Anywhere Work™. Since our inception in 2000, we have been managing our team and serving our clients in a 100% hybrid and flexible environment. We’ve also been helping our clients manage their teams with a trust-first approach, adopting more flexibility in where and when people work and deliver services. Ultimately, this flexibility provides firms with an “edge” in recruiting and retaining the very best talent and attracting NextGen clients.
Originally released in 2014, the 2022 ConvergenceCoaching, LLC Anytime, Anywhere Work Survey is designed to benchmark the remote, hybrid and flex work and service practices of accounting and consulting firms across the country. This year’s survey provides a deep understanding of how firms are managing flexibility, allowing us to both influence and advocate for Anytime, Anywhere Work (ATAWW) profession wide. By combining our own experience with the survey data and best practices from our accounting firm clients, we help organizations create a more flexible and hybrid culture. We have many resources and options to support you whether you’re:
- Seeking help to launch or evolve your remote and flex work initiatives
- Developing learning programs to smooth the transition to a more flexible environment
- Coaching for your managers on how to ensure accountability and productivity more-flexible environment, or
- Expanding your services outside your geography.
The Anytime, Anywhere Work Survey is designed for one person per accounting and consulting firm – usually the Managing Partner or an HR professional - to complete information about their firm’s practices. This year, the survey adds questions about the firm’s return to office (RTO) strategy, asynchronous (anytime) work, hybrid learning strategies, and remote reimbursement policies. Data will be used to identify trends and best practices and published in various publications and educational presentations. Survey participants will receive a copy of the Survey Results Summary by the end of November 2022.
The ConvergenceCoaching, LLC 2022 Anytime, Anywhere Work Survey is now open for input through August 12!

Anytime, Anywhere Work Coaching and Consulting
Forward-thinking firms are leaning into flexible and remote/hybrid work and service delivery as key components of their long-term organizational strategy. We can help your firm develop and implement new flex and remote programs and guidelines, elevate and clarify existing programs, or coach your people managers on how to effectively inspire, manage and deliver feedback to team members in a hybrid environment that includes both in-office and remote personnel. Our ATAWW consultants seek to understand your firm’s goals and guide your HR professionals and other leaders to build a high-performance, hybrid and flexible environment that will attract NextGen talent and clients.
For the last 10-15 years, accounting firms have increasingly focused on developing more specialized offerings by service and industry. Remote service is a natural extension of that evolution by allowing firms to extend their reach and deliver specialized services to clients outside of their traditional geography. We can support you in creating remote service delivery and sales methodologies that transform your ability to acquire and serve clients independent of geography.
