It’s a fact of life that your ability to handle “the numbers” is one of the most important business skills you can possess. More than ever before, today’s managers are required to understand and speak the language of finance and accounting in order to achieve their goals, objectives and bottom-line results.

In a bid to raise the level of financial awareness among non-finance professionals, JobStreet Lanka (JSL), part of a global business conglomerate which provides eRecruitment, BPO and corporate training services, looks to repeat its successful real-world-oriented seminar series for non-finance professionals. The seminar is part of JobStreet Lanka’s international seminar and workshop series intended for managers, to enable them to make the best use of financial information for better short-term and long-term decisions.

“For many managers, the company’s financial statements, particularly the balance sheet, profit and loss account and cash flow statement remain a mystery. However, as these managers move into increasingly senior positions, incentives are frequently tied to those very statements, and discussions regarding financial performance become more regular. A basic understanding of both financial statements and project evaluation tools allows for rational decisions and intelligent discussions. That’s why JobStreet Lankais hosting the Accounting and Taxation Banking Corporate Structure seminar for non-finance professionals.” said Sam Kaluarachchi, Managing Director of JobStreet Lanka.
“In this real-world-oriented training, rather than focusing on finance itself, the emphasis is on using financial information to make decisions that deliver shareholder value in organizations. Participants will learn the practical financial concepts and skills that will help them make better management decisions.” he added.

The seminar is ideal for entrepreneurs and decision makers, who are planning to venture in to new businesses and is expressly designed for executives, managers and supervisors who are often required to deal with financial databut who don’t have formal financial training. The sessionswill be hosted in both Sinhala and English mediums and the content would include; business incorporation and business law compliance, bookkeeping understanding financial statements, RAMIS compliance and tax planning, cost control and effective banking practices. A comprehensive document of the content with specimen forms and contact details of relevant authorities will also be provided to participants.
