 Redefining talent for the global economy

Traditionally, the finance function in Canada has been viewed as a back office function whose most important task is timely, accurate reporting. To support this model, finance teams received specialized training focused on accounting standards and controls.

While this model is still operative, it is table stakes. Instead of a monolithic team of numbers-focused accountants, organizations now look for business advisors, hailing from a broader range of skills and disciplines, who can see business through a financial lens.    

This Canadian point of view is a companion to the Global CFO survey and provides a look into the finance function in Canada and the changes that are being made in the approach to talent management in order to adapt to shifting national and global realities.
