Return To The Office

“Setting a good example is truly the most effective means of communication – and setting a poor one is disastrous!” – Jan Carlzon

Wow. I have heard so many STRONG opinions about when, how, why, and why not return to working in an office environment. Firm partners are thinking about how will we identify and mentor future partners if we never see them in person. How will we really know their personalities, strengths, and weaknesses?

Opposite of that, I have heard about several instances where the majority of the CPA firm staff are back in the office but the partners are mostly absent, still content with working from home.

Firms with strong leadership and competent managing partners know that partners set the example. How many of your partners are setting a good example whether it is about being present in the office or in a dozen other ways?

Here’s an article about bosses not returning to the office.
