Scott Taylor - Associate Director, Accountancy & Finance

As Brexit continues to shape business thinking and engagement, Scott Taylor Associate Director of Accountancy & Finance reflects on a very interesting article in the Harvard Business Review and what our clients are currently experiencing on one aspect of Diversity in the workplace.

Scott comments; "As a result of engaging with our clients and understanding changing needs and expectations on their staff, interaction with wider, non finance, functions support the findings in this article. Interestingly the role of the finance professional as a result mirrors this and this diverse personality profile is more closely reviewed through competency questions at interview."

Some of the main findings in the report are:

  • The importance of creating a working environment that encourages and facilitates openness and diversity of opinion
  • How not recruiting in your own image is of increased importance in the modern work
  • Diversification of management styles to handle and challenge others to drive business performance
