Survey: Most controllers have felt pressure to "cook the books"
By FloQast • Issue #103 • View online
Surveys of CFOs are a dime a dozen. But what about financial controllers? For whatever reason, controllers don’t get nearly the attention they deserve. Well we at FloQast decided to fix that with “Understanding the Modern Controller: A Survey of Financial Controllers,” which was conducted by Dimensional Research and sponsored by FloQast.
There are some fascinating stats in there, including figures that illustrate the increasing crossover between the controller and CFO roles. We also discovered something rather troubling: It’s not at all uncommon for financial controllers to feel pressure to cook the books. Yikes! Download the survey report for free here.
Onto the news!
