That’s according to the latest Robert Half International Financial Hiring Index. Now the bad news: 5 percent of the region’s CFO’s expect to reduce personnel. The results are based on interviews with 200 CFOs at local companies with 20 or more employees. Most respondents said they don’t anticipate any change in hiring during the first quarter.
