This report from ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), talks about the major changes that are happening in the career of finance professionals. The findings are based on a global survey.
Professionals taking the finance path today may not only see a future in traditional finance roles. Instead they gain experience from various finance roles, to later use these skills in other career professions.
Finance professionals in the shared services centers (SSC) gain a lot of insights and develop a broad-based and often international knowledge pool. However, 65% of the respondents think the career paths within SSC are usually restricted to SSC roles. Companies should be providing SSC talents broader career opportunities within the organization.
