Spend more time growing your business than running it.

As a business owner, you likely feel constant pressure to maximize revenues and create an efficient, scalable operating model that can also withstand the challenges and risks that come with running a business. However, according to a pulse survey on time management [1], most business owners spend an average of almost 70% of their time on administrative tasks and employee issues instead of strategic growth efforts.

What if you could increase new opportunities and revenue by maximizing the time you spend working on the business instead of in the business?

It starts with freeing you up from the operational complexities and responsibilities related to tax, accounting, and human resources (HR) — three essential functions of every business.

Know your cyber risk

Get answers to the tough questions with the Advantage Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

When it comes to cybersecurity, the assumption is only large, complex organizations need robust systems in place. The truth is, however, that no company is immune to the risks posed by cyberattacks. In this environment, leaders of every sized organization are being asked the tough questions: How secure are we? What is our risk? Are we compliant with the latest regulations? How do we measure our cybersecurity risk?

The Advantage Cybersecurity Risk Assessment is a starter assessment for businesses that want to implement or improve upon their cybersecurity program but aren’t quite sure where to begin. With this assessment, our professionals are able to identify gaps and vulnerabilities for cyberattacks and provide recommendations to mitigate the risk in your systems and processes.

Plan for the future

Take a different approach to retirement planning

Retirement planning is an essential part of attracting and retaining employees. Baker Tilly Wealth Management can help you craft and implement the right plan for your business and your employees — whether that’s a 401(k), 403(b) or other employee benefit plan. Our service model offers fiduciary protections with step-by-step guidance and can help better equip each participant to save and build toward a successful retirement.
