Jun. 7, 2010

Six percent of CFOs plan to hire full-time accounting and finance employees in the third quarter of 2010, and 9 percent anticipate staff reductions for a net decrease of 3 percent, according to the Robert Half Financial Hiring Index released Monday, June 7, by Robert Half International Inc.


Eighty-three percent of CFOs planned no changes to their staffs.


“Though most CFOs are optimistic about future growth for their companies, many remain cautious in their hiring outlook and are keeping a close watch on economic trends,” said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half.


The survey questioned more than 1,400 CFOs in the United States.
