Time To Get Creative With Accounting Team Compensation
By Blake Oliver • Issue #78 • View online
Did you know that the unemployment rate for accountants is now under 2 percent? It might as well be zero given how hard it’s gotten to hire talent. For three out-of-the-box ways you can hire and keep the best employees, read my latest article, “Time To Get Creative With Accounting Team Compensation.” 
I’ve also got a present for you — the team at FloQast put together a free Cloud Accounting SaaS ROI calculator as a public Google Sheet. We use it to sell the value of close management software, but you can copy this spreadsheet and use it to figure out the return on any subscription-based app that promises to increase your team’s productivity.
Lastly, we’re putting on a free IPO Readiness Forum for Controllers & CFOs in the bay area (mid-peninsula) on Thursday, March 22. I’m really excited to hear Brandt Kucharski, Chief Accounting Officer of Grubhub, on his experience going public. We’ve also got great panelists from Grant Thornton, JMP Securities, and ARC Consulting. And it’s at a brewery, so you really can’t lose by showing up.
For my collection of the best cloud accounting links I clicked on recently, keep on scrolling.
