CFOs continue to hire accounting personnel.

A survey of 1,000 chief financial officers conducted by Robert Half International found that 9% expected to add accounting and financial personnel in the second quarter of 1993. Five percent planned decreases, leading to a 4% projected net hiring increase for the quarter.

While the projected net increase was lower than the 6% net gain anticipated for the first quarter, it exceeded the 3% net hiring increase projected for the fourth quarter of 1992.

The survey predicted staffing increases would be strongest, in the finance, insurance and real estate industries, in which 14% of the respondents planned increases and only 5% expected decreases. In the retail and wholesale area, 13% of the CFOs planned hiring increases, while 6% expected decreases.
