MENLO PARK, CA, Aug. 24, 2011 The still uncertain economy hasn kept some workers from smiling a little more at the office. Four in 10 (42 percent) chief financial officers (CFOs) interviewed for an Accountemps survey said employee morale has improved at least somewhat in the last 12 months. Fifty three percent of respondents said the mood among their teams is unchanged from a year ago.
The survey was developed by Accountemps, the world first and largest specialized staffing service for temporary accounting, finance and bookkeeping professionals. It was conducted by an independent research firm and is based on telephone interviews with more than 1,400 CFOs across the United States. “Businesses that recognize and address the concerns of staff members during the extended recovery can instill greater loyalty over the long term.”
Messmer explained, “Managers play a key role in ensuring workers stay productive and do not become overburdened by providing the necessary resources, from technology to additional personnel.”
