Engaging Tax Professionals

Have you heard about the Engaging Tax Professional Initiative?

TEI is creating new and different value for the next generation of in-house tax professionals

The engaging tax professional represents a constituency of in-house tax professionals who are entering the profession with a different view on knowledge acquisition, career development and professional networking.  TEI is embracing the challenge of identifying, recruiting, engaging and retaining these professionals as the way to secure a vibrant membership and pipeline of future organizational leaders.  Past Institute President, Mark Silbiger, with the support of the Executive Committee formed and launched the Engaging Tax Professional Sub-committee (ETP) as part of the Corporate Tax Management Committee to provide an institutional platform to examine the needs of the engaging tax professional—from all sides.

If your chapter is interested in learning more about engaging and recruiting ETPs or is just looking to offer some non-technical sessions to members, check out the Meetings in a Box listed below.  These were developed by the ETP subcommittee and can be delivered by a member of the ETP subcommittee to your chapter or they can train a chapter member to deliver them as well.

  • Generational Differences in the Workplace: This session provides a fun and lively review of the multiple generations currently in the workplace today and offers suggestions on how to flex across the generations to improve communication and effectiveness in your organization. 
  • Unleashing the Leaders Within Your Organization: This session presents the importance of developing your personal leadership style and how to develop and inspire your team to perform more effectively.
  • Unconscious Bias: This session discusses the unconscious biases we all possess and help us understand ways to identify them and prevent the biases from impacting our business decisions, personnel judgment and even team staffing.
