Managing work/life issues is a major business concern to better meet the needs of employees, many of whom are now in dual-career families. Flexible Work Arrangements in CPA Firms, a new guide published by the AICPA, is a resource for evaluating and implementing the best practices to achieve a work/life balance. The AICPA hopes the study will serve as a road map for CPA firms seeking to attract and retain the best talent.

The book illustrates the impact of economic and social changes that have increased interest in workplace flexibility options that promote productivity and high-quality performance by employees. According to the study, flexible work arrangements create greater stability in client service and facilitate continued professional growth and learning. Through the use of best practices, CPA firms should be able to reduce expensive turnover costs, recruit high-quality employees, improve staff retention, and increase the ability to cope with the seasonal aspects of public accounting.

Flexible Work Arrangements in CPA Firms, is a joint project of the AICPA's Management of an Accounting Practice and Women and Family Issues Executive Committees. A review of the book is scheduled for next month's issue.

The book costs $19.95 for AICPA members, $24.95 for
nonmembers. To obtain a copy, call the AICPA Order Department at (800) 862-4272 and request Product No. 090425.
