People have questions; leaders have the answers.


Make sure you have the answers available In these upcoming FERF reports: Benchmarking the Accounting & Finance Function: 2015

The sixth annual benchmarking report by FERF and Robert Half is based on a survey of nearly 1,400 financial executives. The information in this report is divided into sections representing key operational categories including workforce management, accounting operations, financial systems, sourcing, internal controls and compliance.

2015 Financial Executive Compensation Report

The ninth annual Executive Compensation report by FERF and Grant Thornton is the result of a survey of over 300 senior-level financial executives. It's important to note that the survey was completed by senior financial executives actually working in the jobs described, rather than by human resources or executive search firm executives.

2015 Audit Fee Report

FERF's tenth annual Audit Fee report analyzes the most recent audit year and provides valuable insight into audit fee trends and provides reasons, either positive or negative, for changes from the prior year. The report summarizes survey responses from U.S. publicly and private companies as well as additional data from nonprofit organizations.

The CFO's Role in Cyber Security

All data, including, but not limited to intellectual property and other intangibles, is vulnerable to cyber attacks. Simply planning for potential cyber attacks in the current state will not suffice as cyber attackers are becoming "ultra-sophisticated." To help senior financial executives prepare, FERF and Grant Thornton surveyed and interviewed senior-level executives to help identify the CFO's role in protecting their organization against cyber attacks and the requirements for a good cybersecurity program.
