What is a virtual CFO/HR Manager

When you think of a CFO or HR Manager, you would probably imagine someone working in a big corporation, decked out in expensive suits and making million dollar decisions. However, in modern business these stereotypes no longer apply.

Today they work for businesses of all types and sizes – and you don’t have to pay them exorbitant amounts of money, either.

Virtual CFOs and HR Managers are external resources that provide high-level advice and strategic direction. These virtual professionals work closely with the business keeping tabs on your finances by bringing meaning to the numbers and ensuring you get the most out of your people through effective performance management.

Thanks to real-time accounting, automated payroll systems and cloud based software (such as xero and employment hero), these virtual professionals do not need to be full-time or on-site on a regular basis.

Other benefits include:

  • An independent perspective
  • Improved Insights
  • Management efficiencies
  • Considerable cost savings
  • Expert interpretation of your data
Ask your self the following questions:
  • Are you confident about the direction of your business?
  • Are you operating on facts and not gut feel?
  • Are you keeping up with the growth of your business?
  • Do you have a clear understanding of the opportunities you should be exploiting and the risks you should be avoiding?
  • Are you confident that you have the right people, doing the right job?
  • Do you have enough time for effective performance management?
  • Are you confident that you can trust your numbers?

If you did not answer a loud and confident ‘yes’ then your business could benefit from a virtual CFO and/or virtual HR Manager.
