How software elevates your firm’s recruitment and retention

The future of tax automation

The accounting profession is in the midst of being redefined by technological evolution and rapidly shifting business landscapes. But accounting firms are grappling with a different challenge — one that isn't rooted in numbers or compliance but in people. It is increasingly difficult to attract and retain top-tier talent.

Firms are dealing with a noticeable decrease in recent college graduates eager to join the profession, compounded by a wave of experienced accountants nearing retirement or choosing to leave the profession for other opportunities.
