What Keeps Bosses Up At Night?

Bosses worry. They worry about office politics, and hiring good people. And when they worry, they don’t sleep.

These were some of the findings of a new study from staffing firm Robert Half Finance & Accounting, based on interviews with Chief Financial Officers (CFO).

CFOs were asked, “Which single work challenge, if any, most often keeps you up at night?”

The top responses were “Conflict with coworkers or supervisors” (25% of respondents) and “Poor performance on the job” (25%) – followed by “Finding and hiring the right talent for open jobs” (23%) and “An unhappy customer who threatens to take away business” (17%).

“Security threats to IT systems” was a chief worry for only 8%.

Workers should take some solace in the fact that bosses worry so much about finding talented people to hire. Use this in your next salary negotiation.
