Singapore, [13 May 2024] - As a leading professional services firm, RSM Singapore is committed to enhancing the appeal of the accountancy profession and developing the talent pool, in line with the recommendations contained in the Accountancy Workforce Review Committee (AWRC) Report released by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) on 10 May 2024.


"We are supportive of the AWRC recommendations. At RSM Singapore, we groom our accountants to be business advisors who are valuable partners to businesses, creating a greater purpose in the profession. Recognising that the accounting profession now extends beyond traditional reporting to encompass future trends like sustainability and data analytics, we continuously future proof our talents with rigorous structured training to help them thrive and stay relevant with the demands of businesses. We also invest heavily in technology to minimise mundane routines, making work more meaningful, effective and efficient,” said Derek How, RSM Partner and Head of CPA Practice.

The firm offers holistic development with clear career pathways and opportunities for budding accountants.

GROW is our signature development programme anchored on a framework heavily geared towards cultivating the advisory mind-set in our talents, equipping them with skillsets to help clients solve problems and navigate the increasingly VUCA business environment.

This comprehensive framework already aligns with the primary pillars of the AWRC recommendations, emphasising career advancement and professional growth. The GROW Programme integrates a structured approach to development, incorporating a Performance Management Process to ensure continuous improvement and alignment with organisational objectives.

Key components of the GROW Programme include 

  • Learning & Development training that focuses on building technical and soft skills, including modules dedicated to Advisory Fundamentals & Problem-Solving Management.
  • Ongoing coaching conversations between staff and managers facilitate feedback exchange and ensure alignment with objectives, fostering a culture of continuous learning and development.
