ROBERT HALF INTERNATIONAL ESTABLISHES FINANCIAL LEADERSHIP COUNCIL TO CHART FUTURE OF ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE PROFESSION

Inaugural Summit to Focus on Impact of Changing Workforce Demographics

MENLO PARK, CA — Robert Half International announced today the creation of the Financial Leadership Council, which will bring together distinguished accounting, finance and audit leaders to address key workforce issues facing the profession.  Council members include thought leaders from business and private industry, public accounting, academia, and professional associations.

Robert Half International has long been recognized for its ongoing research, workplace surveys and industry-leading informational materials on emerging employment and management trends in the accounting and finance field.  The establishment of the Financial Leadership Council is a natural extension of this legacy.

The Council will gather in person in early 2007 for a summit to discuss the impact of changing workforce demographics on the current accounting landscape.  To share the group’s findings, Robert Half International will issue a research report outlining ways organizations can better prepare tomorrow’s workforce.

“This decade’s accounting reforms and the need for companies to address key growth and governance initiatives have resulted in significant, ongoing demand for skilled accounting, finance and audit professionals,” said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half International.  “The Financial Leadership Council is composed of a select group of individuals whose purpose is to identify strategies that can help businesses address demographic and economic trends reshaping the accounting and finance workforce.”
