While lockdown rules might change with the wind, there is one thing we do know: looking after your staff matters more than ever.
Our teams and people are integral to the survival of the accounting profession and as leaders in business, we must understand, listen and learn in order to create healthy and supportive working environments.
But exactly what do our teams need in a post-lockdown world?
Over to our new regular show for AccountingWEB Live, People Matters. Presented by Mazuma’s Lucy Cohen, each episode looks at the latest developments in staffing issues for accounting professionals. With coverage of such topics as diversity, wellbeing, recruitment and remote working, this people-focused show will offer practical advice and discussion to help accounting leaders support and nurture individuals and teams for the future.
"People Matters is here to deal with the issues that sit deep within us and can’t be addressed with a tech hack or an efficiency tracker," said Cohen. "Talking about and understanding what makes us tick will allow us all to lead fulfilling and happy lives and careers. It’s not just about the you that shows up to the office, it’s about every bit of of you."
