Companies plan to add accounting personnel.

According to a Robert Half International survey of 1,000 chief financial officers, more than 10% expect their companies to increase hiring of accounting and financial personnel in the first quarter of 1993. Since 4% plan staff decreases, a net hiring increase of 6% should result-- double the 3% net increase projected for the fourth quarter of 1992.

Within various industry groups, 25% of the CFOs in the finance, insurance and real estate industry planned to increase accounting and financial hiring, while only 1% expected to decrease staffs. In retail and wholesale industries, 11% of the CFOs indicated they would hire new accounting and financial personnel, with 5% anticipating staff cutbacks.
