“It is a positive shift to see companies expanding their Finance and Accounting function,” said The Intersect Group’s managing partner Wade Hughes. “This shows that companies are gaining traction and recovering from our recent economic recession.”

The Intersect Group, a national finance, accounting and IT staffing and consulting firm, released the results of their annual CFO survey, revealing projected hiring trends in Atlanta for Finance and Accounting functions in the upcoming year. The survey explores finance and accounting functions of Atlanta companies and whether they are increasing employees, the types of employees filing these positions and whether they will increase spending and staffing in 2013.

The survey results discovered that nearly 45 percent of Atlanta CFOs are planning to hire in 2013. Additionally, the survey suggests that the majority of companies (52.6 percent) will hire between one and five employees and those employees will be staffed in a senior level (five to seven years experience), permanent role. Additional key findings include:

  •     71.8 percent of companies represented have seen increased revenues in comparison to 2012
  •     63.9 percent of respondents plan to increase Finance and Accounting spending in 2013 in comparison to 2012
  •     88.8 percent of respondents plan to either increase staff or maintain current level within their Finance and Accounting Function in 2013, comparing to 2012
  •     52.8 percent of those jobs being staffed will be staffed by permanent hire employees, while 27.8 percent will be staffed by contract-to-permanent hire employees

“It is a positive shift to see companies expanding their Finance and Accounting function,” said The Intersect Group’s managing partner Wade Hughes. “This shows that companies are gaining traction and recovering from our recent economic recession.”

“The majority of surveyed companies expect F&A spending to increase in 2013, clearly indicating their confidence in future Finance and Accounting growth,” continues Hughes. “Increased revenues due in part to mergers and acquisitions solidify the resurgence of the finance and accounting function within big businesses.”
