It‘s important to know how your organization stacks up against others. By benchmarking your accounting and finance function practices with other companies, you can determine whether you are keeping pace in an environment that is changing faster than ever.

Financial executives find functions – from closing the books to implementing new technology systems to managing compliance – to be costly and time-consuming. The question that financial executives find themselves asking is, “How do we do more with the same level of resources?”

In this one-hour, complimentary webinar, experts from Robert Half, Financial Executives International, and senior executives from leading companies, will share major trends, actionable steps for today’s finance leaders and critical takeaways related to the recently released report, “Benchmarking the Accounting & Finance Function: 2016.”
