Five Workplace Trends For 2017
“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” – Newt Gingrich
As you already know, nearly every CPA firm is looking for new talent. It’s truly turned into a war for talent in the public accounting profession.
It’s not just public accounting, of course. According to Glassdoor’s newest report on job trends, there is a record number of unfilled jobs – 5.85 million as of April 2016 – which represent the most since BLS started tracking job openings in 2000.
Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, shares some 2017 job trends:
#1 HR will transform itself into “people science.”
#2 Many things get automated but we don’t lose our jobs.
#3 Nontraditional benefits will become less popular.
#4 We’ll make progress narrowing the wage gap.
#5 The Gig economy will slow down.
