It has been projected that millennials will make up 39% of the workforce by 2023, while generation Z will comprise 23%. By 2030, that millennial percentage will have hit 70%, it is estimated.

With figures like that in mind, creating a workplace that appeals to accountants in those generations is crucial. If you’re like the many current finance and accounting managers who are finding it increasingly difficult to both hire and retain talent, that appeal to younger generations (or, possibly, the lack thereof) may be the source of such difficulties.

Younger generations have grown up in the age of technology. The process of completing tasks manually is a foreign concept, and one that they simply won’t compromise on with the plethora of automated solutions that are available today.

However, technology has dramatically changed the accounting industry for the better. Tedious engagements that previously took hours to complete can now be finished with the click of a button—and the talent you’re looking to hire knows this. With this knowledge in mind, considering tech solutions is a great way to differentiate yourself from the competition if you're struggling to hire and retain employees. 

Attracting new talent isn’t the only benefit of automating your firm’s processes, though. Technology can do much more for your firm.

These benefits include:

The list of advantages technology gives your firm goes on. It's a simple fact that potential employees will consider your firm’s use of technology as they weigh their options.
