A good majority — 87 per cent — of business leaders today feel their role is more challenging now than it was five years ago, according to a survey by Robert Half Management Resources of 270 CFOs in Canada.

“Facing an ever-evolving corporate landscape, executives have to deal with the pressures of emerging trends that require them to continually reassess everything from technology and staffing challenges to regulatory demands and compliance requirements,” said David King, Canadian president of Robert Half Management Resources in Toronto.
