What’s your solution when you’re understaffed? Are the best accounting staff being allocated extra hours? Are you hiring junior staff to handle lower-level tasks so partners can tackle more complex matters? Or is it something completely different?
If you are understaffed in your company, especially over a long period of time, it is important to address the problem head-on. Companies that don’t address the constraints of time, money, or talent will often burn their resources and ultimately fail. By setting up systems and properly delegating tasks, you can move your business forward while your team works to solve the challenges at hand. Above all, stay positive and let your team share ideas for improvement and growth. That’s how everyone wins.
In the meantime, here are a few tips that can help keep things running smoothly if you’re understaffed at your accounting firm.
