We understand that our member firms are capable of developing these tools but find that most firm administrators do not have the time to create these types of resources.
Gainesville, Fla. (PRWEB) October 03, 2016
CPAmerica International introduced their new RISE Inclusion Initiative, a complimentary career development program, to its members during the 2016 Leading Partners Retreat and Firm Administrators Roundtable held in Minneapolis this September.
Members learned this program is focused on building firms’ bench strength, recognizing diversity and engaging employees. The program offers valuable tools and resources that include a strong mentorship program, clearly defined expectations, equal access to leadership, utilization of flexible work arrangements, and consistent documentation of participant progress.
“We understand that our member firms are capable of developing these tools but find that most firm administrators do not have the time to create these types of resources,” said Alan Deichler, president of CPAmerica. “We worked closely with a committee of CPAmerica members, sourced information from the AICPA and various universities and consultants to create templates that can be used together or alone, based upon what best fits your firm culture.”
Member firms that are interested in the RISE Inclusion Initiative should contact Senior Member Services Manager D'Yãn Davis at 352-727-4070 or at ddavis(at)cpamerica(dot)org. For more information, please visit https://www.cpamerica.org/Services/RISE-Inclusion-Initiative.
