Finance is an ever-changing landscape. The last three decades have transformed the sector significantly. With digitisation, the field has seen more automation, required upskilling and a higher rise in competition. 

Sameer Madan, Director-Finance, Agilent Technologies and Arnab Roy, Zone CFO - Greater India & CFO Schneider Electric India discuss the importance of unlearning in the sector. Madan comments, “Finance is not what it was 25 years ago. I’ve had to learn, unlearn and relearn things many times.” Roy adds, “How you align your process, upskill workers and blend the tools and process together will determine how you do on your transformational journey.” 

Paras Bafna, Group-CFO, Tynor Orthotics emphasises the need to challenge and engage the workforce by working on high-impact projects to keep the talented workforce updated with the latest skill and knowledge. Karun Gupta, Head of Finance, Salesforce India, points out that while upskilling is necessary for an organisation it is essential to create time for employees to learn. There needs to be a balance between work and learning.  

 Keeping the workforce resilient is a top priority for all organisations in this changing environment. To view complete discussion of experts, watch the video here:
