Ghyslain Cadieux, Senior Manager in the Management Consulting Group and Costing & Profitability Specialist, was invited along with Véronique Roy, Operations Director at Plastique Micron, to participate on a panel discussing the Connectivité des équipements : quand l’information en temps réel permet d’augmenter la compétitivité (Equipment connectivity: When real-time information increases competitiveness) at a Les Affaires Usine 4.0 event held in Montréal on September 19, 2017.

More than 200 business owners and managers were in attendance and had the opportunity to learn more about the strategic importance of linking Factory 4.0 initiatives to the “finance” function. Véronique clearly communicated the competitive advantages of implementing a costing system within a business.

The article Avez-vous ce luxe de sélectionner votre clientèle la plus rentable? published on the Les Affaires website, also provides an overview of how Plastique Micron has developed connectivity projects, and succeeded in implementing a quick and efficient costing process, developing a new bidding system, knowing the actual profitability of its product portfolio and directing its business decisions.

The group born after 1995 lives in both the physical and the digital worlds. But who are they? And how will their unique characteristics impact the workplace? What are their qualities? What about their faults?

Most of the Gen Z personality traits (highly autonomous, self-taught, at ease with technological tools, etc.) make them very attractive to organizations, at least those that are ready to welcome and accommodate them. In an interview with CPA Magazine, Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, says, “Organizations have to learn to adapt because solutions come in many different ways. If we try to ‘break’ them, they’ll go elsewhere.” “They make me feel more alive, and I love their energy,” he says. “They’re very committed workers. They’re multitaskers who bring a fresh global view that embraces teamwork whatever the time, place or means. Their community is different and is defined by their passion, whether it is artificial intelligence, blockchain or anything else, and these communities span the globe.” To know more, read the article published in the October issue of CPA Magazine.
