The Top 100 People: 20 lessons learned from COVID-19
While the coronavirus pandemic reminded accounting’s leaders of what’s truly important, both professionally and personally, it also revealed the resiliency of the profession.
As part of this year’s Top 100 Most Influential People survey, Accounting Today asked, “What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from the pandemic?”
The T100 expressed pride in their teams’ abilities to transition into remote work and find new ways to serve clients and connect with each other, as well as in the profession’s ability to serve as advisors to clients for new complications like the Paycheck Protection Program. Still, many emphasized the need to focus on human connection and mental health, and make those priorities going forward.
