According to CFO Magazine, attracting and retaining the right talent is the top internal concern of the CFO. This is great news for workforce planners building that all important relationship with the finance imageteam, but of course we knew that smart CFO's already worried about talent and are supporting strategic workforce planning efforts!  What's really interesting about the list of internal concerns (left) is that the number two concern is "Ability to forecast results".
