When the auditor rings twice

by Herbert Breitler on 05/13/2019

Despite all the gains in efficiency, audits are still cost-intensive. In the course of the digital transformation, COSMO CONSULT has succeeded in taking auditing processes digital. Since doing so, the auditors from Wagemann + Partner have been able to access electronic documents, consolidated business figures and accounting transactions regardless of when or where or what device they use. Questions are answered by chat, telephone or video conference. Because no long-term on-the-spot audits are required, workload and travel costs have been reduced.

The Wrong Recruitment Strategy

by Dr. Daniel Gburek on 04/04/2019

Would you have hired Albert Einstein? Modern enterprises are faced with rapid technological progress, rising customer expectations and growing pressure to innovate. As a result, managers and their teams are forced to continuously adapt to new situations and circumstances. In such a rapidly evolving business environment, a recruitment policy based purely on qualifications no longer does the job. In its place, a competence-based model begins to look like a much more effective strategy for finding truly qualified new employees.

by Torsten Harnack on 03/28/2019
