Welcome to Our Robert Half Finance & Accounting Blog!

Hello, to anyone who is reading this. This is Robert Half Finance & Accounting's first blog post. This is also my first blog post, not just for this site, but ever. As the executive director of this division of global staffing firm Robert Half, it is only fitting I kick us off as we enter the blogosphere, right?

Whatever caused you to stumble upon this blog, we hope to bring finance and accounting professionals and companies tips on financial career and management trends in the posts to come from our own and external experts, top recruiting professionals and our strategic alliance partners. This includes current accountant salary range information from our renowned Salary Guide. We aim to inform, entertain, educate and influence those with careers in finance! And we won't disappoint.   

Access Salary Information

To launch the blog with a bang, we are offering access to the latest finance and accounting salary information through our recently released 2014 Salary Guide. The guide itself and our Salary Center provide predictions for accountant salary ranges, as well as compensation data for hundreds of finance and financial services positions in the United States and Canada. We also offer insights on current hiring trends.

Average starting salaries for finance and accounting positions are projected to increase an average of 3.4 percent in the United States, and 3.2 percent in Canada.

2014_Salary_Guide_cover-accountant-salary-careers-in-financeWhile we have been tracking this information since 1950, this year's U.S. guide offers an expanded hiring environment section and a spotlight on healthcare in light of the Affordable Care Act and its impacts on finance and accounting departments. In the Canadian guide, you will find local hiring trends for various provinces and details on what's pushing up compensation in the field.

Our Salary Guides are intended to help businesses plan for the coming year and for professionals with careers in finance to keep current on compensation levels and the positions in greatest demand.
