Individens humankapital och dess påverkan på prestation inom yrket: En studie av revisorsprofessionen

Abstract [en]

This study aims at identifying critical factors for audit candidates. This issue is relevant as many auditors discontinue at an early career for other promising offers. This thesis identified four antecedents to expected performance of early career audit candidates. A survey was sent to 2036 auditors and 200 complete responses were returned. A significant amount of controls such as age, gender and size of the bureau indicated that there are only marginal differences between different groups. Furthermore, it is herein confirmed that hard factors such as educations and work competencies have significant impact on expected work performance and loyalty. Our results are important for audit firms recruiting and maintaining employees. Understanding the relations emphasizing loyalty along with knowledge of concepts relating to performance, audit firms will see a substantial increase in efficiency and effectiveness.
