Big Talent for Small Firms: The Cayuse Approach

In the realm of tax audit and accounting, talent is everything. With constantly evolving tax laws and regulations, the need for highly skilled professionals is greater than ever before. However, smaller firms often find themselves at a disadvantage when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent.  

Solutions are available to help small businesses gain the edge in managing their audit and accounting processes. Cayuse Commercial Services provides a cost-effective and efficient program that offers your team a flexible blend of expertise and skills, without the overhead and stress associated with recruiting, training, and retaining talent. We offer a partnership that respects the financial limitations and personnel constraints that exist naturally within smaller accounting firms.  

Present Barriers 

The smaller tax audit and accounting firms in operation today face a unique set of obstacles when it comes to talent acquisition. Budget constraints make it challenging to compete with larger firms that can offer higher salaries and more extensive benefit packages to attract top talent. Recent graduates are also more enamored with larger, popular firms, posing significant barriers when trying to recruit fresh talent to those that are less familiar. More modest firms may also struggle to hire professionals with specialized skills or expertise in niche areas of tax and accounting.  

Recruitment resources are much more limited in smaller firms. An HR entity that is restricted in time and resources may struggle to actively recruit and train new talent. In addition, such firms may experience higher turnover rates due to their limited budgets coupled with the inability to offer lucrative opportunities to their employees. 

Because the world of tax audit and accounting ebbs and flows throughout the calendar year, smaller firms also often find themselves with too many or too few employees as the peak and nonpeak seasons churn. Being able to scale personnel up or down as fluctuations occur is a huge driver in saving time, money, and resources, particularly for small businesses who struggle to find the balance in housing the appropriate talent at the right times.
