Why You Need a Remote-Work Leader
by Roy Maurer, online manager/editor, SHRM

The coronavirus pandemic has decidedly reshaped how and where work is done and has led to the creation of new HR responsibilities. One of those transformational roles — leading remote work — will be critical to an organization's ability to grow and compete for talent.

Darren Murph, head of remote at all-remote technology company GitLab in San Francisco, discussed with SHRM Online the reasoning behind his role, the responsibilities of the function and how employers can create a remote-work leadership position at their own organization.

SHRM Online: Why should companies hire someone to lead and manage remote work?

Murph: Remote work isn't merely something one does; it is an intentional series of organizational motions that create a fundamentally unique environment. A supportive remote atmosphere is more flexible, more disciplined and more inclusive, but it requires a tremendous amount of focus.

Particularly for companies transitioning to remote, having a leader ensures that it is someone's job to push the entire organization toward remote-first practices. By default, humans will likely look to synchronicity to solve problems. They're likely to document sporadically, if at all, and will work in the medium that suits them best.

A leader of remote work ensures operational discipline around these critical areas, funneling work into asynchronous workflows, creating an atmosphere for informal communication, and ensuring that teams have the tools and training they need to thrive.

Recognizing PPP Forgiveness Could Impact Budgets
by Jered A. Fuquay, CPA, CIA, director, Alerding CPA Group

Nonprofits were undoubtedly happy to be included in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), but now comes the process of figuring out how to recognize the funds for budgeting purposes. If all, or even some, of the loan is forgiven, then the amount forgiven becomes income to the organization in the form of a grant resulting from extinguishment of the PPP loan.

With nonprofits wanting to show their financial statements in the best light possible, the reporting period this income is recognized is critical.

Initially, many accountants expected the PPP loan forgiveness would be recognized as a gain in the statement of activities when the forgiveness is officially approved by the bank. This is typically the point in time when loan forgiveness is recorded.

In a Q&A released by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in June 2020, the AICPA stated that nonprofits may instead treat the amount of the PPP loan that is forgiven as a government grant. Under this approach, the loan is recorded as a liability when the funds are received and is recognized as a conditional contribution.
