Rancho Cucamonga, CA, September 22, 2016 – The IMA®  Inland Empire Chapter is proud to announce our October Technical Meeting. The next meeting will take place on Thursday October 20th, 2016.

This month we welcome Robert Valenzuela. Robert will be presenting “How to Pay Accounting and Finance Professionals in a Changing Market”

The Demand for Accounting & Finance Talent is on the Rise.

Fueled by economic growth, demand is on the rise. This has created a competitive labor market - a market in which candidates, especially those with specialized skills, can pick & choose their jobs. Because of this, it's now more important than ever for employers to offer quite a bit in order to hire & retain top talent and win the war for talent.

To build a talented & motivated team, you need a terrific culture. Your employees should strike a healthy work-life balance, have opportunities to give back to the community, and generally, be engaged in a positive environment.

But at the core of every job is salary. Any accounting & finance professional is unlikely to accept a job offer - or stick around long if they do - without a generous number.

This event will provide exactly what you need to offer the right salaries & employ the best talent. You'll find:

           Accurate up-to-date salary information  & total cash compensation

           Figures based on company size & geographic location

           Detailed salaries that drill down positions by experience level

           Professionals with CMA or CPA designations earn much more than their non-certified peers
