Event description

Description

ACCA USA, in partnership with AccountingFly, is pleased to present the third in a series of national Talent Panels focused on innovations, changes and opportunities in the accounting and finance field. Hosted by Morris, Manning &Martin LLP, our Talent Panel will focus on the finance and accounting industries and the “Gig Economy”. In our increasingly connected, digital world, companies large and small are relying on global talent to power their growth. The rise of the Gig Economy and alternate working arrangements is re-shaping how accounting is performed. Organizations that embrace this shift are rewarded with access to the right talent for their finance function.

But what should hiring managers and talent executives consider most essential when they build their teams? Do temporary contractors in the gig economy play nicely alongside full-time staff? What about the impact on culture? How stiffly should companies set the bar for qualifications, and do traditional paths to success still matter? These questions and more are just some of the issues we will attempt to tackle.

Moderated by George Baah, Assistant Professor of Accounting at the Quinnipiac University School of Business and Vice Chair of ACCA USA member network, and joined by panelists Jeff Phillips, CEO of AccountingFly and Publisher of GoingConcern.com, Brad Hughes, Co-Founder of Beech Valley Solutions and Caleb Newquist, Founding Editor of Going Concern, the panel will help to define the gig economy and discuss how leaders of corporate finance and consulting firms can take advantage of this industry shift.

Light snacks and cocktails will be served. Parking is available on site.
