Robert Half International News Release (04/03/12)
Just over seven in 10 (73%) North American financial executives
expect increased government regulation to raise the burden of
compliance over time, according to a newly released report from
Robert Half International and Financial Executives International.
A majority of survey respondents (75% of U.S. and 70% of Canadian
financial executives) expect the burden associated with
maintaining compliance to continue to rise over time. Staffing,
including the recruitment and retention of skilled financial
professionals, was listed by respondents across all locations as
one of the top-three challenges facing accounting and finance
departments. Some 37% of U.S. executives and 45% of Canadian
financial leaders surveyed use temporary, interim, or contract
professionals in their accounting and finance departments.
