Automation in Finance & Accounting

It is estimated that 40% of finance activities such as general accounting operations, cash disbursement, revenue management, tax, reporting, financial planning, analysis, etc. are now fully automated. The pandemic thrust digital transformation onto many organizations and F&A functions are not immune to the impacts. As financial services become increasingly automated, CFOs need staff with technological expertise to take them into the future of finance and accounting.

The Changing Talent Needs of CFOs

Organizations need F&A professionals who have savvy computer skills, the ability to operate business intelligence software, data analytics, and forecasting. They are looking for individuals with management skills that can be used to develop internal and external business relations, and business development skills to identify new areas of profitability.

CFOs recognize that a flexible staffing model is essential to business continuity during changing economic conditions. Even when budgets are limited, companies must push forward and bridge skills gaps to meet long-term goals as well as meet routine, essential needs.

Employing a mix of full-time, temporary, and project staff enables organizations to keep costs low and scale teams as needed. Contract workers provide access to specialized skills for high-priority projects and can alleviate the burden on core staff during busy times, such as end-of-year accounting.
