What does it mean to be future-ready?
Over the past few years, industries, businesses, and organizations of every size and nature, and the CPAs and professionals who serve them, have experienced profound and persistent change.
Research shows that, more than ever before, CPAs are being called upon to help protect their organizations, steward through disruption, and lead into uncharted territory.
Experts say change is the new normal. So how can CPAs get ready for what’s next?
Becoming future-ready means to anticipate changes and challenges, and proactively plan for career transitions and transformations.
Future-ready CPAs have the skills to:
- Understand and navigate through social, technological, economic, environmental, and political change
- Rethink situations, shift mindsets, and embrace change
- Provide insight and foresight to solve business problems and create value as finance business partners
- Demonstrate ethics and professionalism to protect, steward, and lead strategically
Whether you are confident about your future-readiness or realize you need more confidence, many professionals agree that being prepared is the only option to stay relevant and valued in today’s uncertain economy.
