Our latest monthly roundup features a number of perspectives on what 2022 might bring for professional accountants.
With sustainability issues front of mind as the year gets under way, we report on how Big Four firms in India are boosting their ESG expertise in response to rising demand, and explore how professional accountants can help small businesses raise their ambitions for sustainability. With inflation putting pressure on businesses in many regions, we also offer practical advice on how to mitigate rising indirect costs.
We know this time of year can be challenging on personal as well as professional levels. Psychologists Dr Rob Yeung and Jess Baker offer insights, respectively, on how small-talk with colleagues can help lift your spirits, and how people pleasers can also help themselves.
Our main interview this month is with new ACCA president Orla Collins. She explains why ethics and integrity will be among her key focuses during her year in office.
Finally, we have added another podcast to our series – the latest episode is on practical ways leaders can support staff in difficult times, on both personal and professional levels.
