Paul McDonald, a Robert Half senior executive director, said in a news release, “What’s striking is the continuing high percentage of companies that rely on manual reconciliation of accounts—some with thousands of general ledger accounts.There is a significant opportunity for these firms to streamline the close and use their resources more efficiently.”

In their survey, Robert Half and the Financial Executives Research Foundation found that among U.S. respondents, accounting and finance managers average 47 hours of work per week, while non-management staff averages 42 hours per week. And these numbers are expected to increase under their current management models.
