Following Covid-19 and the Great Resignation, CFOs have seen their priorities shift to the workforce. This focus will likely remain in 2023 as companies face a skills shortage and a potential recession.
To understand how CFOs plan to deal with these obstacles, we surveyed CFOs across the United States. We asked about topics related to the potential for hiring freezes, how a skills shortage would impact their decision to outsource, and how prepared they feel to support their organization's growth and scalability over the next year.
"With a skills shortage and a potential recession on the horizon, there are some serious roadblocks to growth ahead. But there are also ways of overcoming those roadblocks. For CFOs who are wondering where their peers are at when it comes to these obstacles and the various solutions to them, we believe these results reveal a clear picture of what other CFOs are gravitating towards to support their teams and the businesses they're a part of."
