2022 Global Finance Trends Survey
From automation and cloud to ESG and talent management, CFOs are reimagining their long-term roles
The takeaways from the results of our latest Global Finance Trends Survey confirm that CFOs continue to extend the value they deliver to the organisation far beyond the boundaries of traditional finance and accounting activities. CFOs make pivotal contributions to remodeling the organisation’s talent and technology investments, designing and implementing supply chain transformation, guiding ESG strategy and reporting, fortifying cybersecurity, and helping the enterprise contend with soaring inflation and rising interest rates.
Take a few minutes to dig into our survey findings, from the top finance priorities as rated by your peers to how they are addressing inflationary and other market trends, ESG reporting requirements and more. And we hope you gain further appreciation for the strategic vision the CFO and finance organisation is helping to drive in today’s leading organisations.
