|Title:||More 'hands on' please: Career development in the accounting profession||Contributor(s):||Smith, Theresa (author) ; Sheridan, Alison Jane (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4635||Abstract:||Historically the organization played a greater role in managing the careers of their employees. By the mid 1990s however, this view was superseded by the notion of the 'boundaryless' career, where career development was framed as the responsibility of employees. In this paper, drawing on a sample of accounting professionals, we consider the question of what role employees believe their organizations should play in managing their careers. The results of the research question the validity of the boundaryless career concept. The accounting professionals in this research do not appreciate the 'hands off' approach adopted by organizations. For accounting firms to retain their most valued staff they may need to attend more closely to their career development needs.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||19th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference, Canberra, Australia, 7th - 10th December 2005||Conference Details:||19th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference, Canberra, Australia, 7th - 10th December 2005||Source of Publication:||Engaging the Multiple Contexts of Management: Proceedings of the 19th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference, p. 1-14||Publisher:||ANZAM: Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management||Place of Publication:||Canberra, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||150305 Human Resources Management||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||910402 Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzam.org/conference||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 40
