    Accountants With Attitude

    A Career Survey of Women and Men in the Profession

    Jackson C, Hayday S | Oct 1997 | Institute for Employment Studies

The survey was commissioned by Women in Accountancy to ascertain the views of professionally qualified accountants from all six CCAB bodies towards their current and future careers. As the number of women entering the accountancy profession increases, the survey identifies similarities and differences in the career experiences of women and men, and key HR challenges facing the profession. The report aims to stimulate debate about how careers in accountancy might develop in the future.
