I have been hearing about continued signs of economic improvement. Clients are reporting stable, even improving orders. But a more subtle, but important, issue is staffing. Recently, I heard from Dorothy Ramsey, a Milwaukee-based CFO of a specialized retailer. She is also a director and career services chair of the local chapter of Financial Executives International, the premier association for CFOs. “Staffing demand is up at all levels, especially for the staff accounting jobs and first-line managers,” she says.
