Hello, Friends of Integritas!

Happy New Year!  Hoping this finds you doing well and not too squeezed amidst the overall talent shortage!  In the accounting realm, firms continue to feel the shortage.

The accountant shortage is so acute, small and midsize firms are ditching audits and hiring overseas.  A national shortage of accountants is prompting small and midsize firms to hire overseas for the first time as they seek workers to audit U.S. companies’ books and prepare Americans’ tax returns.  Large firms such as KPMG LLP and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP have long hired international accountants to support client work. Now, with tax season poised to kick off, small and midsize accounting outfits that serve family businesses, individuals and smaller companies say they are offshoring jobs as local recruiting pipelines dry up and accountants leave the profession in droves.

Recruiting remains a hot topic in all fields, not just accounting!  We’ve kept up aggressive efforts and committed resources to be helpful in responding to client needs with good people!  

Will AI (Artificial Intelligence) take over the workforce?  Stay tuned as we continue to have discussions in our forum groups on this topic.  In the meantime, we remain your local resource meeting people live, in person!

“The Mike and Pete Show?”  Stay tuned.  We are contemplating a podcast to help keep our friends, clients and candidates informed!
