altKaouthar Lajili, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Telfer School of Management, has been awarded $10,000 from the Certified General Accountants of Ontario (CGA Ontario) for her research project “Exploring Modern Human Resource Accounting and Financial Reporting in the North-American Financial Services Industries”.

Linking together three inter-related fields (accounting, financial accounting and human resource management), this research project will explore how companies disclose information about their human assets, the type of information they disclose and the value of that disclosed information to market participants and investors. This study will seek to provide best practice guidelines to both Canadian and international industries, and will also endeavour to foster exchange and collaboration among scholars, policy makers and professionals in these fields.
