Facilitate Greater Financial Transparency
What is the story behind the numbers reported to them?
Lavoie is uniquely positioned to help our clients achieve transparency in accounting practices and take organizational capability to the next level.
Benefits of Financial Transparency
Transparent financial records are also referred to as shifting to an “open books” financial management. The ultimate goal is to make accounting records visible to all employees.
By making accounting records available to all employees and not just managers, executives, and the accounting department, the entire staff has a thorough and real-time view of how the organization is faring.
Here are some of the key benefits of open books financial management and why making accounting records transparent improves organizational efficiency.
Make Smarter Future Decisions
The only way to ensure funds are allocated properly is to have a clear financial picture. In addition to looking at the present, financial transparency is also critical to future success. Organizations can develop stronger long-term strategies based on accurate data.
Build credibility with investors
Increasing financial transparency fosters trust and integrity. Without transparent statements, investors can’t build confidence in your company or shake the fear of risk.
Expedite decision-making processes
When managers get to see how their daily work and decisions have an immediate impact on performance, it can provide more powerful insight than a monthly or quarterly report. Financial transparency equates to fast and accurate procurement of real-time financial data for managers to make decisions and form action plans.
Improve team financial literacy
Employees outside the accounting department do not need to have a thorough understanding of accounting standards to do their jobs. However, transparent financial records and the numerous opportunities to interact with them will cause them to become more financially literate regardless of their function.
Having more financially literate employees makes for stronger and more informed decision-making across departments, and even in their personal lives. Jobs that have a tangible benefit in their personal lives will make them happier and more loyal employees.
