PrideStaff Financial reports that salaries for accounting and finance professionals are on the rise, making recruiting and retaining top industry professionals even more challenging.
"Unemployment in accounting and finance operational positions has been at or below three percent for 10 months now, indicating a sustained candidate shortage," states Ryan Williams, Vice President of PrideStaff Financial. "At the same time, exceptional professionals – especially experienced candidates with specialized skills – know their worth in a tight market. These two factors are driving salaries higher and forcing employers to 'ante up' in order to attract and retain top talent. In fact, PrideStaff Financial has seen pay rates for all accounting and finance positions increase an average of 20 percent over the last two years."
To stay competitive, Williams recommends that employers revisit their compensation levels for accounting and finance positions. "If you need to hire, or want to make sure you're paying at or above market rates, PrideStaff can generate free, real-time salary data reports for you," says Williams. "Based on your requirements, we can drill down by market, job type and even skill set to provide you with specific, up-to-the-minute compensation information – even if you're not a client of ours.
"Our ultimate goal is to help employers find and retain qualified people – whether it's by making a key placement or simply providing reliable salary data that helps a firm keep a key employee," continues Williams. "When an employer succeeds, we know we've done our job."
