MGI Partners Conference 2021

Best Practices: Attracting and Retaining Professional Staff in the Most Challenging Marketplace in the History of Public Accounting in the U.S.


This Virtual Conference is intended for Managing Partners and Partners in leadership positions and management roles by invitation only. It will be held on Thursday, November 4, 2021 from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm Eastern time.

We’re currently in a candidate-driven market, with many of us feeling the pressure when it comes to recruiting top performers. 73% of U.S. companies are struggling to find relevant candidates.

For the first time on record, the number of job openings has surpassed the number of unemployed employees, meaning it’s ‘slim pickings’ for your hottest open staff positions.

How your brand is perceived by candidates is more important than ever. Candidates have an army of tools at their disposal to gain insights into your firm and evaluate your culture, i.e. Glassdoor, The Muse. Social media is also a powerful medium where employees can share their experiences and feedback and they do not hold back, freely sharing the ‘good, bad, and ugly.’

One of the best indicators of success is the growth of your Firm. Growth not only in terms of revenue or the number of clients you have, but also in the number of employees. As your business grows, you will need more team members to handle the additional responsibilities and ensure smooth succession and transition of clients as Partners retire.

Conference Description

In this high-level interactive session, we will hear from recruiting industry experts and discuss strategies and tactics to fine-tune the recruiting process. We will also address best practices from HR professionals to establish professional and career development programs, framework/infrastructure, and culture to increase engagement and retention.
