Digital threats to corporations, governments and individuals are at the highest level that they have ever been. Cyber security is not just dominating the headlines but conversations in boardrooms as well. A data leak or similar attack poses massive financial, reputational and legal risks for companies. Smaller companies are even more vulnerable as they might not have dedicated people or resources trying to combat hackers who are actively attempting to target them.

The modern workplace is undoubtedly a more diverse environment. We see greater participation from a wider cross-section of society, with race, age, gender, skills, and education all being part of the workforce. However, diversity does not end here. Almost all major corporates in the world have programmes promoting diversity and inclusion. How can cultural, ethnic or gender diversity help boost the financial performance of businesses?

Regulations have become as commonplace to the finance industry as bread to a duck pond since the banking collapse of 2008 and 2009. The question is then now, is the finance industry suffering from having too much of a good thing? From Basel III and EMIR to Dodd-Frank and MiFID II, regulations come in many forms as those governing bodies force banks to hold more capital and inch up the capital they are required to place behind their businesses.

Each passing year creates a new record in terms of corporate costs associated with government and industry regulatory compliance. Some of these costs are unavoidable – they are just the cost of doing business. However, a good chunk of the costs is the result of suboptimal handling of certain aspects and this is directly caused by improper training and a lack of understanding about risks, regulations, and compliance.

What can those of us working in the broader finance and accounting fields expect in relation to careers, salaries, and benefits in 2018 and beyond? There are a few unmistakable trends such as big data, technology systems, regulatory functions, the need to be in a growth industry and with the key soft skills.

Finance professionals spend a great deal of time with the planning, budgeting, and forecasting (PBF) process. It is an important aspect of business planning since it not only provides management with measurable goals and targets but also offers a broad outline as to how to achieve those goals. In fact, the CFO and the finance department in some organisations, can drive business with active and aggressive planning and budgeting process. Given the importance of the PBF process to the modern day organisation, it is not surprising that a significant amount of resources are devoted to it. Download your free copy of the report here.
