From strategic hiring to employee retention incentives, CFOs are increasingly moving outside the finance department to maximize human capital potential in untraditional ways.
As organizations recover from the Recession, CFOs have been given the difficult task of maintaining a reduced budget in collaboration with a high-efficiency workforce. This pressure has inspired many finance executives to reexamine their role in employee affairs, moving away from simply dealing with salaries and benefits, towards becoming more engaged in every step of the employment process from initial hire to retirement—and all stages in between.
