With the ongoing skills crunch in accountancy and finance, it’s vital that businesses and accountancy practices are able to retain existing staff as well as attract new talent. But the traditional slog of Excel and manual task processing doesn’t always lead to happy, productive teams.

Finance professionals face an overload of manual tasks and an outdated perception they are simply the company’s bean counters. AccountsIQ has recently carried out detailed research into the tools and processes used in finance teams and accountancy practices and how these impact job satisfaction. Drawing on this research and the expert insights of our panel we’ll investigate how things can be improved through a combination of technology and culture in firms.
  • How many different tools the typical finance team uses
  • How much time they're spending in Excel and doing mundane manual work
  • What the research showed about levels of stress in the profession
  • How to ensure that teams feel valued and produce meaningful data and insights to help businesses
