In this sector, the professions require a great deal of attention to detail and organization. Working hours are spent on extensive analysis, risk management and regular reporting. A point of honor is to respect the processes. This is an integral part of daily work.
The monthly, quarterly or annual production of “figures” is the visible part of the financials’ work that depends on a good number of actors and processes for which finance is the guardian.
This is the source of many difficulties.
Finance, as the support department in a company, is very much focused on the production of figures and analytical work. It often happens that in front of so much “brain power”, the human aspect and especially its development are left aside.
