Fieldguide for Financial Audit Helps Firms Alleviate the Talent Crisis

The industry-wide talent shortage has been well documented. According to the 2023 AICPA (American Institute of CPAs) Trends Report, Bachelor degrees in Accounting dropped 7.8% between 2021 and 2022 and Master’s degrees in Accounting fell 6.4% in the same time period. In a recent WSJ article, it was reported that more than 300,000 U.S. accountants and auditors left their jobs in 2021-2022, a 17% decline. Add to that an ever-increasing demand for audit services further widening the service gap, and the need for technology leverage is clear.
