How Kurt is building a better working world
“Today’s working world comprises not only a dynamic, connected digital economy but also a workforce that spans five generations. That means a broad range of perspectives on and disparate levels of comfort with the technology that informs them all.
I am a champion of using technology as the common language that can bridge age, interest and skills gaps. I’m in a position where I can serve as a catalyst and interpreter for the generation in need of transformation. I can also serve as a career builder for the new generation of technology-savvy tax professionals trained in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, who will develop the next great unknown.
Finally, I want to help enable tax functions to achieve maximum value and efficiency, with the added result of enhancing job satisfaction and improving the retention of their tax resources.”
