What do accounting employees think about their employers? Does job satisfaction relate to the quality of the accounting firm’s audits? What about work-life balance? These are some of the questions that not only have implications for regulators and accounting firms, but also for investors, who rely on audited financial statements for decision making. However, these questions have remained largely unanswered due to a lack of data…until now. 

In this webinar, you will learn about how accounting employees perceive many different aspects of their workplace (including compensation, career opportunities, and work-life balance), which aspects of the workplace best explain employee satisfaction, and how employee satisfaction and work-life balance are linked with the quality of audits performed by accounting firms.
