Finance market trends 2012

The current economic climate presents something of a challenge to finance departments, both in the UK and beyond. The requirement for careful attention to cost management in tandem with investment and growth, and increased reporting means that finance teams are under more pressure than ever to deliver results – often in departments that are under-resourced.
We thought we’d ask key finance decision-makers directly about how they’re handling these challenges and how to overcome them. We also questioned their strategies for retention, growth and other key factors on the finance agenda.
We surveyed more than 500 finance leaders and their answers form the basis of the 2012 Finance Market Trends report. Please find more detail in the pages that follow, or have a look at the video below for the key highlights and messages.

We hope that the responses and advice prove useful to finance professionals in terms of their own team management and career progression. We look forward to hearing what you think.
