More About Flexibility
“The simple act of paying positive attention to people has a great deal to do with productivity.” – Tom Peters
Yesterday, I blogged about flexibility. Since it is such a popular topic, I wanted to continue to provide information to you today.
Isaac O’Bannon, Managing Editor of CPA Practice Advisor, in a recent post tells us that many firms really do offer flexibility. If your firm does not, it’s time to learn more about it and begin making some changes.
Here’s O’Bannon’s take on the rules:
As long as you comply with RULE #1: Get the job done. It is also recommended that you comply with RULE #2: Be damn good at your job, consistently. Oh, and RULE #3: Be responsive to your boss, your clients, and anyone else you do business with or for- so that it’s just like you were in the office.
Here’s some firms that made Fortune’s list of the 50 Best Workplaces for Flexibility. #1 was Ryan, an international tax firm. Other accounting firms on the list: PwC at #12, Plante Moran at #27 and DeLeon & Stang at #30.
