Trends of ‘23: From Accounting & Finance to ESG, GRC, and Beyond!


In September 2022, the Workiva Amplify conference doubled down on incredible content and actionable insights. Over 7,200 attendees mingled in Las Vegas or virtually for over 70+ high-octane, informative sessions across three tracks: accounting and finance, ESG, and GRC. 

Here are three of the most important highlights to take into 2023--if you'd like to see more, download the infographic linked at the bottom of this blog!

Two essentials you need to hop on ASAP to streamline reporting: consolidation and automation. Capturing data and storing it in one place empowers accounting and finance teams to improve the quality of their reports and the reporting process. And automation eliminates time-consuming manual tasks so you can focus on high-value strategic work.

Reporting frequency is a hot topic for ESG executives. Rather than dropping a massive ESG report once a year, leaders are considering ways to report more frequently. If you want to stay ahead of the pack, start planning what that could look like for your organization.

Internal audit representatives from Compass Minerals International Inc, Cornerstone Building Brands, Flowserve Corporation, and Workiva gathered to share talent and acquisition tips from happy, high-performing audit and compliance teams, including:

  • If being in the office is required, rotate remote work to give your teams flexibility and a change of scenery

  • It’s no secret that the world is in a slightly volatile state. Interns help relieve pressure—retain them as

    contractors if your organization has a hiring freeze
