|Opis:||The work of an accountant is responsible and complex. It includes knowledge from various areas, such as accounting, tax, legal and other professional areas. They can be employed in the public or private sector and in a company or accounting service. Depending on where they are employed, certain characteristics of accountant work differ, such as work dynamics, knowledge and skills, freedom at work, opportunities to work with other accountants, and other characteristics of work. Mainly due to the dynamics of work, which is also affected by rapidly changing legislation and regulations that the accountant must follow, there is often a work overload among accountants, which leads to poorer well-being and health. The main factors of work overload, that need to be given enough attention (as only in this way the employer at the company level and the accountant on a personal level can eliminate them) are: different types of overload, such as emotional and cognitive, interpersonal relationships and leadership, work-individual relationship, impact and development and health and well-being.
In the master's degree, we investigated whether there is a difference between the work overload and well-being of accountants who are employed in a company and accountants who are employed in an accounting service. When researching the overload and well-being of accountants, we first examined articles and other theoretical sources in this field and then we conducted a survey of accountants. The survey was conducted online. With the results of the survey we wanted to show the differences between the two groups of accountants and draw attention to the work overload of employees in accounting services and suggest possible improvements in organizing the workplace of the accountants and, of course, all other employees, because, in our opinion, the well-being of a company's employees is key to the company's good operations. We found out that the work overload of accountants is high and that there are statistically significant differences between the work overload of accountants in a company, which are less burdened compared to accountants in accounting services. The results related to the well-being of an accountant also showed that accountants in a accounting service feel worse on average than accountants in a company.|
