Menlo Park, Calif. — Sept. 26
Many employers are pulling out all the stops to recruit employees with in-demand skills, a new Accountemps survey finds.
Nearly half of chief financial officers interviewed said they are improving benefits to attract top talent. Almost as many — 45 percent — are raising salaries, and another 42 percent are investing in training and development for promising workers.
More than one-quarter of CFOs indicated their companies are bringing in temporary staff to bridge the skills gap.
The survey was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on interviews with more than 2,100 CFOs from a random sample of companies in more than 20 of the largest U.S. markets.
