Employers need to understand the current hiring trends within the accounting, finance and IT arena so they can recruit and retain top talent. This includes knowledge of what the market is commanding for high-quality accounting, finance and IT professionals.

Similarly, it’s important for professionals to understand their worth and what to expect for wages in the coming year. The tightened labor market puts many candidates in position to request at-market or above compensation packets based on their demand.
