Practice Management


An AICPA Private Companies Practice Section white paper, “Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining Talented Staff,” shows smaller firms how to attract and keep valuable employees ( http://pcps.aicpa.org/resources/staffing/recruiting+and+retention ). In a recent Institute survey of 500 firms, few had programs to help achieve these goals—though some firms, PCPS said, have more appeal than they think.

“Smaller practices can offer staff accountants a congenial atmosphere, extensive exposure to clients and flexible work hours,” said James C. Metzler, AICPA vice-president for small firm interests. “These are powerful selling points to play up in the employment marketplace.”
