Here’s my reply:
Have you seen the studies that show the effects of an inspirational speaker can last as little as a single day, or that taking your staff out for one of those team building exercises is effective for maybe a week? Has it occurred to you that maybe, what really sabotages staff morale is the frustration of having to do the same administrivia and manual work day in day out, when they know there’s a better way? You know the fulfillment of putting in a good day’s work. That’s the feeling that will lift staff morale, not just for a day or a week, but for a whole career. This is where a professional accountant can help and, like you, we’ve been doing this for over 30 years.
Simply reply to this post and we’ll work with your team to design business processes that focus on adding value rather than pushing paper. The result will be not just a happier staff, but also a better bottom line!Bill Kennedy Professional Accountant
