Accountant welcoming a new member of the staff.

Where accountants and bookkeepers can find new staff

Staffing your firm can be a real-live challenge. Not only is the “great resignation” a valid concern; firms must do what they can to provide a great work environment, increased benefits, and job satisfaction.

I surveyed our members of Roundtable Labs to ask them for best practice recommendations on where accountants and bookkeepers can find new staff. Roundtable Labs is a community of accountants and ProAdvisor® business owners who gather together online to grow their businesses and accomplish common goals.

Here’s what members had to say:

Jonathan BelloOne 8 Solutions: Networking groups and social connections.

Stacey ByrneStacey L Byrne CPA: Community college and university career centers.

Kelli CoxCGC Accountants & Advisors: We connect with accounting teachers at our local colleges and universities. We’ve gotten quite a few ambitious young people who want to work while they are in school—and then stay with us when they graduate.

Rachel Dauchy, NetDeposited: Networking groups and business associates.

Stephanie EliaElia Business Services, Inc.: Indeed.

Rebeccah JohnsonBlack Diamond Bookkeeping, LLC: Personal referrals, community college accounting programs, and networking groups.

Jamera MassopJamera Lee Massop Consulting: Robert Half Accountemps and my personal Facebook network.

Sandy PettyExecutive Financial Partners: LinkedIn, networking groups, and Facebook.

Louise PooleyPooley Accounting Services: Indeed.

Susan PruskinSusan Pruskin Consulting: Indeed, LinkedIn, and WizeHire.

Angela RobertsMain Accounting Services: WizeHire

Tonya SchulteThe Profit Constructors, LLC: LinkedIn.

Katrina WayReal Estate Professionals CFO: I have found that my social sphere has been a great resource for talent. My sales and marketing manager, along with my new project manager/bookkeeper in training came from having a conversation with them and realizing there was an opportunity for both of us. I also belong to ProVisors, who have a “Needs, Deals & Wants” section, and it has been a good secondary source for finding talent. Currently, one of my interns and a new prospective bookkeeper came from that.
