The performance of professional accountants has a significant impact on the financial health and success of organizations. This study aims to compare the job performance of professional accountants who are members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) and the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN).
The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews to gather comprehensive data on job performance indicators. A sample of professional accountants from both ICAN and ANAN will be selected using a stratified random sampling technique. The research will focus on various aspects of job performance, including technical competence, ethical behavior, professional development, and overall job satisfaction.
The quantitative data will be analyzed using statistical techniques such as descriptive statistics, t-tests, and regression analysis to identify any significant differences in job performance between the two groups. The qualitative data obtained from the interviews will be thematically analyzed to provide deeper insights into the factors influencing job performance.
The study anticipates that professional accountants from both ICAN and ANAN will exhibit high levels of technical competence and ethical behavior due to the rigorous training and certification requirements of both professional bodies. However, differences may arise in terms of professional development opportunities, networking capabilities, and perceived job satisfaction.
The findings of this research will contribute to the existing literature on the job performance of professional accountants in Nigeria. The study results will provide valuable insights for employers, professional bodies, and policymakers in understanding the factors that contribute to effective job performance among accountants. Furthermore, it may help identify areas for improvement in training, professional development, and support systems for accountants in Nigeria.
