The number one priority – talent! With the ‘great resignation’, new ways of working and a re-set of aspirations, the availability of skilled finance personnel is now a top priority for finance leaders. As a result, leading finance organizations are investing more in finance upskilling and reskilling. One clear result of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the rapid acceleration of the digital transformation of our economy. Accompanying this digital transformation is an acceleration of changes to the critical skills, capabilities and mindsets that businesses need from their finance function. It is therefore vital to develop a strategic and sustainable approach to acquiring, developing and retaining a diverse pool of accounting and finance talent. In this session, the panel will speak to how they have reset and evolved their approach to talent development and upskilling.
