Benefits Draw Top Talent


One-third of CFOs surveyed by Robert Half International thought benefits packages were the most effective incentive in attracting top accounting candidates - up from just 2% five years ago.

The findings also suggest that traditional incentives, such as insurance, are a higher priority today than flexible work schedules, which fell as being the most effective incentive among 33% of CFOs in 2003 to 13% in 2008.
