The state of the back office leader

Our finger is on the pulse of HR, Finance, and IT leadership. As the first quarter wraps up, the back office leaders are re-evaluating the priorities they’ve established for the year and sizing up the challenges they face. 

We surveyed more than 1,200 managers and executives spanning HR, finance, and IT at US-based companies with between 200 to 1,000 full-time employees. We found that these functions and their leaders have more in common than they may think.
