While nearly 7 years have passed since the Great Recession, economic and political uncertainty have continued to plague business decision-making. The roles and responsibilities of CPAs and finance professionals, meanwhile, has continued to expand. This course is part of a series of short courses that will explore key economic, personnel, and regulatory issues that will have a substantial impact on financial and accounting decisions for years to come.
This one hour course will examine and walk-through key functions of HR departments, as well as the overall employment picture in the United States (and the associated risks with the employment figures). Special focus will be given to the role of the financial professional in analyzing the effectiveness of HR departments and forecasting employment risks.
