Unity Search Salary Guide
Texas remains the hottest economy in the United States. CEO Magazine conducts an annual survey of CEOs for some of the most prestigious companies in the United States. In the survey, the magazine asks those CEOs what state they would relocate their corporate headquarters to if they were going to relocate. Texas has now been the #1 ranked state in that survey for 13 years in a row!
Accounting and Finance hiring in Texas remained strong in 2017. North Texas outpaced the rest of the state last year as the region continued to draw more corporate relocations from across the country and the booming real estate and investment industries continue to expand and hire more people. However, the Houston area started to rebound in 2017 due to the stabilization of oil and gas prices. As a result, more and more Houston area companies have dropped hiring freezes and started to ramp back up. Real estate, homebuilding, consulting, service, and investment-related businesses continue to be the industry leaders in Accounting and Finance hiring within Texas.
Based on discussions with local and regional economic leaders as well as various financial executives and hiring managers, we believe that the 2018 job market for Accounting and Finance professionals in Texas will continue to be very active. As such, top performers in those fields will become more and more difficult to find, attract, and retain.
Employee recruitment and retention should continue to be a major focus of companies and public accounting firms as hiring and retaining a strong workforce is critical for sustained growth.
We hope you will find our 2018 Salary Guide a useful tool to benchmark your salary and/or the salaries of members of your department.
Best wishes for a happy and productive 2018!
