CFO Career Survey Report

The pandemic years of 2021 and 2022 produced unprecedented talent scarcity, emboldening CFOs to test the job market for greater career development and earning opportunities.

Our recent survey conducted in December 2022 of almost 200 CFOs across the public, private and non-profit sectors found that, while financial leaders are satisfied in their careers, retention is a potential issue that looms for companies as a large percentage of CFOs explore other options or retire.

Why Retained Executive Search?

Having a team, like Salveson Stetson Group (SSG), who is already up to speed and knows your objectives, culture and expectations adds value and supports even the most abrupt transitions. Knowing when retained search is the right choice for you can be a challenge. In a recent comparison of contingency vs. retained search, we discuss this and some other key questions you should ask when choosing an executive search firm.

DEI Institute

DEI is not
an initiative.

Diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) must be embedded into all that we do as leaders. Diversity increases access, innovation, and business results while also strengthening employee engagement and retention. This is true for our organization, clients, and communities.

A Different Approach

A belief in true partnership creates the opportunity for our team to develop a deep understanding of your industry, organization, culture, and desired outcomes. When you pair that with our strong process, comprehensive network of talent, and our commitment to delivering an excellent experience to both our clients and candidates, you receive a level of customized service that exceeds that of a larger firm and better outcomes.
