Research conducted jointly by Source for Consulting and the Commercial Division of Advanced Business Solutions found that 46 per cent of finance professionals are under the impression that the reports they create are ignored when in the public sphere.
In order to create more confidence, 63 per cent of the survey's respondents feel that senior managers should be doing more to make use of financial information.
The concerns of those in finance jobs were heightened by the fact that the report, titled 'Making the numbers add up – how better financial accounting can support and promote growth', also detailed that 48 per cent of managers and directors will review a study produced by someone else no more than once a week.
Simon Fowler, managing director of Advanced Business Solutions, commented: "This is bound to create frustration amongst the finance teams, with the production of reports being viewed as wasted time and effort."
