I have the privilege of assembling our weekly CFO Moves column, so the finding of a new survey that the vast majority of finance chiefs haven't identified their successor doesn't really surprise me. I've seen a lot of press releases stating, "The company is considering both internal and external candidates to fill the position."

Still, the percentage of companies with no CFO succession plan is pretty staggering. The aforementioned poll of 1,400 CFOs by Robert Half Management Resources found that 83 percent have not identified a successor for their position.

Bad economy improves worker attendance, turnover and punctuality

In fact, they were so scared that the rate of employee absences in 2009 was the lowest recorded since 1985, the year legal and business publisher BNA began its quarterly survey of employers. The median absence rate in 2009 averaged 0.7 percent, falling beneath the 2008 low of 0.9 percent of scheduled worker days per month. Absence rates have declined consistently since 2005, when they averaged 1.5 percent of scheduled worker days. The survey of 267 human resource and employee relations executives also showed that absences tended to be lower in smaller than in larger organizations.
