ECONOMIC REALITY FOR CPA FIRMS

There is a great article by Steve Erickson (named to the 2010 MOST Recommended Consultants) in the CPA Insider.

He gives you some great information to COMMUNICATE to your staff.  You should share the trends, which are disturbing and negative, but he also has some good news for you to share with staff.

Here’s just one piece of advice from Steve for staff that I often stress and agree with wholeheartedly:

Manage your time. E-mail, voicemail, social networking all take time and can be disruptive when trying to do work requiring critical thinking skills.  Block out time to devote to your client work exclusively. While at the office work with intensity and then go home on time to be with your family. In the long run this approach will make you happier in your career and also at home.

Most of you and your staff could really be more productive at work if you made the effort.  Are you productive or just busy?
