CFO Insights: Remote control – How finance works, not where, matters most now

Published on: May 28, 2020

For many finance departments, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced virtual work to a function that traditionally required all hands on deck.

For CFOs, this new dimension has also created new long-term leadership challenges, ranging from the need to adapt decision-making to a virtual environment to clarifying performance expectations. In fact, in the latest North American CFO Signals™ survey, three-fourths of respondents expect more of their total workforce to work remotely going forward. And 72% of respondents say more finance work will be conducted remotely post-crisis.

As CFOs brace for that virtual future, they are digesting the lessons of recent months and rethinking the work of finance as it relates to technology, teamwork, performance, and leadership.

In this issue of CFO Insights, we will discuss what finance leaders can do to manage effectively in a world of remote working, as well as how the concept of creating value may change for finance moving forward.
