It was wonderful connecting on a professional and personal level with all of the Client’s accounting team through weekly video conferences facilitated by the Corporate Controller. I believe these group meetings were integral in keeping the cohesiveness of the team and a smooth working environment, despite the challenges presented by their current remote work environment in a fast-paced industry.
It was rewarding to help the overall closing process by establishing a set of best practices across different functional areas. The implementation of those best practices created a smoother month-end closing process as well as better quality data output—which allowed more efficient financial analysis and reporting. It also helped to create a more cooperative environment amongst different departments (e.g., Accounting, FP&A, Procurement, Sales) and clear accountability for each process.
