This report marks the launch of ACCA's Talent Equation Campaign, the most comprehensive research programme of finance talent management practices globally. The campaign is part of ACCA's deeper-dive into the future of accountancy.
Capturing the views of nearly 600 finance professionals across the globe, the report provides a baseline understanding of the major issues organisations - and their finance leaders - currently face in terms of talent management strategies.
The initial findings suggest that attracting, developing, engaging and retaining finance professionals is becoming increasingly challenging. A career spent in the finance function may no longer be the prime aspiration of newer entrants to the profession (and those that follow), and changing business model and operating footprints may be opening up new ways for the enterprise to tap into ‘finance’ talent.
