Co-Managing Partner, Harriet Greenberg recently sat with CPA Insider to discuss the ever-evolving skills needed to excel as an accountant. The demand for a highly technical skill set is rising exponentially, as the need to keep up with advancing technologies is at the top of most firms' minds. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are two of the fastest growing facets of the accounting industry.
This shift in skills means that skill-based promotions are increasingly popular. "We've always promoted based on skills, not just on seniority," Harriet tells CPA Insider. But she notes that the change in skills needed in today's environment has made the search for talent even more important.
