The findings include insights from more than 3,200 Generation Y finance professionals in 122 countries, and directly support ACCA’s global programme in 2010, Accountants for Business. As a contributor to the research, we want to share the highlights of the findings with you. Here is a small selection of some of the interesting results:
- There are major retention issues, with almost one-third of survey respondents wanting to leave their organisation
- Younger finance professionals need to understand what career paths are available for them within their organisations
- Employers that can demonstrate a stable recruitment environment and a longer-term proposition will be better able to attract talent
- Broadly, lifestyle factors are more important than contractual factors in attracting this generation to organisations
