Finance Talent

The importance of managing Finance Talent

There is no doubt that Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) and their finance functions face an expanding and complex realm of responsibilities. Core accounting and reporting are no longer the only responsibility of the finance function. Modern day finance is also faced with managing people, systems and technology. It seems increasingly apparent that the next generation of finance talent have big shoes to fill, but how will leading CFOs take action in order to fill them?

Critical areas of focus for Finance Talent

There are three areas of focus for Finance Talent that will be critical for CFOs and finance leaders in the future:

  1. The traditional skills around controls and stewardship are going to be absolutely essential in a challenged market
  2. The increasing demand for greater levels of insights by the business and the key skill of being able influencing others
  3. The charisma to lead and develop people, taking them on the journey to deliver greater value to the business.
