Atlanta CFOs Report on Second-Quarter Hiring Outlook

/PRNewswire/ -- Seven percent of chief financial officers (CFOs) in the Atlanta area expect to add accounting and finance staff during the second quarter of 2009 and 7 percent anticipate reductions in personnel, according to the most recent Robert Half International Financial Hiring Index. The majority of respondents, 85 percent, anticipate no change in hiring.

The local results reflect a two-quarter rolling average based on interviews with 200 CFOs from a stratified random sample of companies in the Atlanta area with 20 or more employees; 1,400 CFOs were queried for the national data. (To view the national results, visit http://www.roberthalf.com/PressRoom.) The studies were conducted by an independent research firm and developed by Robert Half International, the world's first and largest staffing services firm specializing in accounting and finance. Robert Half has been tracking financial hiring activity in the United States since 1992.

"While many companies are maintaining current staffing levels, some are bringing in project professionals, including for senior-level positions, to ensure the completion of key initiatives and assist with rising workloads," said Andy Decker, regional vice president for Robert Half International in Atlanta. "Demand also persists for credit and collections and accounts receivable staff."
