Looking forward, young people at the outset of their careers are a key part of this story of renewal. They will bring their talents and aspirations into the workplace and, through them, transform the future of accountancy for the modern workplace.
As the world of work changes, this smart, connected, ambitious yet realistic generation will enter the profession, exploring their career ambitions and building a wide range of finance and business skills as a platform for future career success.
This report, jointly undertaken by ACCA and IFAC, examines those aspirations, seeks to understand the enduring appeal of the accountancy profession to younger people, as well as exploring the views of Generation Z on a wide range of business and work-related issues. The report also shares insights and advice from organisations around the world on the strategies businesses should be looking to adopt to best harness the talents and capabilities of this next generation in the workplace. It also provides valuable guidance for young people in forging their own careers as work transforms.
