The type of person that pops into your head when you hear the word “auditor” is likely outdated. Today, the hallmark of an effective auditor isn’t an aptitude for reviewing supporting documents for transactions. It is an ability to navigate relationships, think critically, apply professional skepticism, and leverage cutting-edge technologies. In this week’s episode, Erin Shannon, CPA, a strategic initiatives leader for Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance business, shares how her team is driving change within Deloitte and the audit profession by identifying trends that are re-shaping the auditor’s role, employing technologies that are changing the ways audit services are delivered, and onboarding talent that has the skills needed for audit’s future.
