Increased Compensation Negotiation

Because of the continuing accounting and finance talent shortage, competitive salary, benefits, and perks will be offered. Because top performers will have multiple job offers, they will have higher negotiating power to increase overall compensation. Along with salary, bonuses, raises, and promotions are valuable. Health insurance, a retirement plan, additional vacation days, a student loan repayment plan, and paid parental leave are also in high demand. Flextime, remote work options, work phone, or company vehicle are also desirable.

Factors Affecting Accounting and Finance Salaries

Finance and accounting salary ranges are affected by a variety of factors. For example, benchmarks are high in California, New York, and New Jersey due to the high cost of living. Soft skills such as communication, adaptability, leadership, commitment to continuous learning, cross-functional collaboration, and strong work ethic can bump up salary. In-demand technology skills such as ERP systems, cloud-based systems, data analytics, and database management software can improve negotiating power. Responsibilities, complexity, and job importance play a role as well. Industry, employer, clientele, employer place in the market, candidate experience and credentials factor in, too.
