Services for the Unexpected:  The Right People
Dopkins CAAS Team COVID-19 Deliverables
Part 1 of 4

Businesses are facing unprecedented economic challenges in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. To remain operational during these uncertain times, it is imperative that organizations take these challenges into account and examine opportunities to remain competitive whenever possible.  To that end, a growing trend is to look at operational functions, including accounting and finance, and investigate methods to transition these functions from “cost centers” to “profit centers.”   A significant factor in this process is the consideration of the individuals supporting the organization’s accounting and finance functions: it is paramount that the utilization of people is optimized for the cost to profit center transformation takes place. The key is having enough of the right people in the right roles to better the organization.  Quite often, businesses employ individuals whose experience and skill-set are not aligned with their responsibilities.  They are often over or under qualified for the duties they perform. How can your organization overcome these challenges?
