THE OTHER P&L (PEOPLE & LEADERSHIP): PODCAST SECTION

AARON & SCOTT EPISODE 1 (PART 1)

“How do you keep a productive workforce? How do you have a great culture? How do you meet the company goals? All that stuff is strategic HR. We talk about the great resignation and retention of employees and how we fill critical jobs for us. That’s on a very high strategic level that affects every part of the business. And every part of the business, especially senior leadership is involved in solving those issues or the company can’t grow and won’t be successful.”

“As a CFO, you should be the executive leader. You should be focused and making sure that the ship is running right from the back office, accounting function, and the defensive side of the equation to. Look at the offensive side where we’re formulating strategy. And part of that is making sure that the operations of the business and the trajectory of the business are going well. “

“I think from a CFO finance standpoint, you automatically use systems all the time. You have a system that you enjoy using, you use it to get all your data, to look at budgets, to get real-time forecasts, that sort of thing, right. HR tends to have an HRIS. So human source information system, usually it starts with the ground level being payroll.”

“Even when you’re recruiting folks to come in on your team, they’re gonna ask other team members, you should actually have them meet with other team members on your team. They’re gonna ask about the culture. They’re gonna ask about how are you as a leader. And what’s it gonna mean to them when you are the employees that work for you that are part of this interviewing process are gonna say, you know what era and meets with us once a week, he’s really there to support us. He’s really there to help us be successful. There is no better accolade that you can get as a leader, and especially being able to recruit positions quickly than that piece of feedback in itself.”

AARON & SCOTT EPISODE 2 (PART 3)

“If we give the annual cost of living increases, our payroll’s gonna skyrocket. So how do we judiciously make sure that we’re addressing the compensation issue? Obviously, there’s qualitative stuff that we have to do as good managers and executive leaders to create the right culture and the right atmosphere for success. How do we look at the compensation component while not breaking the bank and having a CFO like me go bananas, because all of a sudden, you know, our, our pace of payroll is, is triple that, of the growth of our revenue?”
