More than a third of chief financial officers (35%) cite heavy workloads as the top workplace concern for finance and accounting professionals, according to a survey by Accountemps, a division of Robert Half International Inc. (NYSE: RHI).
Job security ranked second, with 19% identifying it as the top concern. Corporate governance mandates/compliance issues ranked third, at 17%.
"The combination of compliance mandates, traditional projects and shifting priorities has challenged accounting and finance professionals to keep up with their growing workloads," said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half. "The problem is further compounded by a shortage of highly skilled candidates in many specialties."
The survey questioned more than 1,400 CFOs.
