What Keeps Financial Executives Up At Night?

According to a new nationwide survey, the answer was making sure their businesses are in the black. Robert Half Management Resources says their nationwide survey revealed 34% of chief financial officers (CFOs) said their company’s top priority for 2005 was growing revenue. And nearly half, or 45%, of respondents said they anticipate employee healthcare plans to be the biggest cost increase over the next year.

Other top priorities for CFOs included managing expenses 22%, recruiting and retaining qualified staff 17%, and gaining competitive market share 11%.

Biggest anticipated cost increases after employee healthcare plans were technology spending 20%, employee recruitment and training 11%, and other employee benefits 6%.
