Maintaining Sustainability and Growing your Firm

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Sustainable growth needs to be driven by healthy profits, while allowing the firm to build its culture and stay true to its purpose. There is a direct link between the firm’s financial performance and value. This is especially important when planning for internal employee succession. Financial strength is achieved by coordinated efforts throughout the firm, from the leaders to the full staff team. On a macro level, the focus is on integrating new opportunities into the existing firm and culture. On a micro level, the focus is on close budgeting and monitoring projects and firm overheads. In addition, the compensation strategy for owners and employees is aligned with firm goals. We will include a presentation to highlight and explain how management can use key financial metrics to monitor and assess the financial health of their firms, manage day-to-day operations, and set performance targets. 

This webinar will be available with live closed captioning.
