Survey Shows Increasing Productivity Top Challenge For New Financial Managers
There is no performance grace period for the president-elect in his first 100 days, nor for new financial managers, who are expected to produce results immediately, a new survey suggests. Nearly one-third (30 percent) of chief financial officers (CFOs) interviewed cited increasing productivity as the top challenge faced in their first 100 days on the job. Boosting profitability was the second most common response, cited by one in five (20 percent) executives.
The survey was developed by Robert Half Management Resources and conducted by an independent research firm. It was based on telephone interviews with more than 1,400 CFOs across the United States.
