Surgent's Why People Quit: A Look at Accounting and Other Professionals On-Demand Webcast

Member Price: $49

Employee turnover has always been expensive, and experts warn that the cost of employee attrition keeps rising. Tight labor markets, a strong economy, and increasingly collaborative jobs are just some of the explanations given for the high price of losing employees. While some of these "macro" factors are beyond an employer's control, there is substantial research showing practices employers can implement that encourage employees to remain and grow with an organization. So, why do people quit? It is commonly thought that employees often leave their jobs because they do not like their boss, they perceive low opportunities for growth, or they are offered a better opportunity somewhere else. However, new research reveals that what really affects career decisions are employees' sense of how they are doing compared to their peers or where these individuals thought they would be at a certain point in life. This course provides an overview of how to improve employee retention. Whether you are a sole practitioner with one or two employees or part of a much larger organization, this course will be valuable to you.

Surgent's Work-Life Balance: Maximizing Productivity and Understanding Related Tax Issues On-Demand Webcast

Working as a financial professional is an accomplishment that offers the potential for a good salary with long-term growth. Despite being a sought-after career, studies show that being overworked is the greatest source of anxiety and dissatisfaction among financial professionals. Left unchecked, a life centered exclusively around the demands of work can be both physically and emotionally detrimental. Establishing a work-life balance is difficult in any profession, yet financial professionals confront unique challenges that make this goal seem even more elusive. Technology results in being "always on," with no true time to disconnect and genuinely enjoy family, exercise, or hobbies. Lack of balance comes with costs, including poor health and lower productivity. Why are some professionals able to establish a successful balance between career demands and family while others are not? How are some firms able to achieve both high employee satisfaction and strong productivity? This webinar looks at research, surveys, and simple anecdotal information to provide a better understanding of how to achieve a realistic work-life balance in the modern world. We also discuss the tax consequences that arise when professionals seek balance by working from home in one state while their employer is located in a different state.
