As business owners, I'm sure you'll agree.
How can we address this problem then? The key is coming up with more efficient way of doing things.
We're living in an era where technology choices are abundant. Instead of working it to our advantage, many people find the many options available as disadvantageous. We have too many gadgets to manage. We are spoilt with the many payment modes available these days. We're spoilt with the many ways of doing banking transactions.
Until we're able to take back control, we'll be enslaved by technology. It's time to reverse the relationship. At times, it's not necessary to use the latest shiny technology when you don't need it. At times, it's necessary to adjust your process that takes advantages of new capabilities offered by a new technology. The point is - know what you need and be a master of your process and tools. Processes and tools should not just be for the sake of it. They should make your life easier. If you feel this is something you've been missing, talk to us over coffee. If there's any advice we can share to let you regain back that control, we'll be happy to do so at no obligation.
The other thing is keeping your accountants happy. Over the many years of working as accountant professional and countless conversations with fellow colleagues and other accountants, I come to the realisation that we, human beings, are social animals. Across many organisations where the accounting department is made up of one or two persons, employee retention is a big challenge. As accountants, we face our own ups and downs at work. Having an outlet to vent our frustration to someone who speaks in the same frequency is helpful in a lot of situations. Just like any other professions, good accountants are likely to have their career ambitions. As humans, we always seek progress. We always seek betterment in every aspects of life and becoming a better accountant is one of them.
I see in a lot of companies who find themselves in a stage where their HR budget allows only keeping a small team of accountants, the human capital is not seen as an investment that will grow. As a result, there is lack of growth paths or career ladder that is key to retaining good talents.
At Instabooksasia, we seek to fill this gap. We combine custom processes and human capital investment to create a workflow. This workflow allows our team of accountants to serve companies with limited budget. If you are a business owner who have the budget for 1 or 2 accountants but want to see quality that is equivalent to maintaining high performance accounting department, it is now possible.
