Survey: CFOs Optimistic About Economy But Wary of Labor Shortages

CFOs remain optimistic about US economic prospects for the rest of this year, according to the results of The CFO Survey, a joint project of Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and the Federal Reserve Banks of Richmond and Atlanta.

In this survey, CFOs also responded, however, that their key concerns include labor availability and related cost pressures.

According to the Richmond Fed (which covers the Mid-Atlantic region), current “widespread labor shortages are not without cost.” More than half of the 75% of firms that reported challenges finding workers also reported that the worker shortage reduced revenue, especially for small businesses. Aggregated, labor shortages alone cost the economy 2.1 percent, or $738 billion, in lost revenue, according to the Richmond Fed. Read more.

Planning for Fall: Update Your Employee Handbook

With this fall looming, consider reviewing and updating your current employee handbook content. Or if your organization or company doesn’t have one in place, it’s a good time to start the process of building one for your employees. HR-operations

Here are some questions to ask when reviewing or building your employee handbook:

  • Are there any policy updates that need to be made?
  • Have any procedures changed that need updating?
  • Does it contain clear, consistent and concise language?
  • Is the employee handbook orderly and well-organized?
  • Does the handbook reflect your unique company culture?

Ideally, your handbook should be updated regularly to ensure policies and procedures are current. It also needs to reflect applicable changes in law that have occurred through the year (particularly each January and July).
