We know how difficult it can be for smaller firms to retain key senior staff. Staff who are ready to enter junior management roles tend to move to larger organizations. After making significant investments of time and money into these individuals small firms tend to lose them right at the point when they could start taking workload off the partners and really contributing to the growth and profitability of the firm.

The Manager Training Program
We developed the Manager Training Program to help firms invest in and empower their senior staff to grow both in their careers and within their current organization.
100% of participants recommend the Manager Training Program. Here’s what they’re saying:
“The program helped prepare me for my transition to manager—to better understand my role and what’s expected of me—and gave me the tools to move forward and be a great manager.”
“By participating in the program, I’ve become a more effective communicator and mentor.”
“After the program, I had increased awareness of the administrative side of public practice accounting and how I as a manager can help relieve pressure on both the preparers and the partners.”
