The Institute of Management Accountants is allying with the staffing company Robert Half to support the careers and professional development of accounting and finance professionals.

The two organizations are teaming up to provide access to career tools and information to foster professional growth. Both organizations will offer salary information resources and drive awareness of the IMA’s Certified Management Accountant certification. Robert Half job candidates will also get access to the IMA’s CareerDriver assessment and development tool.

“A crucial element to furthering the accounting and finance profession is supporting those who are looking to explore future career options and maximize their potential,” said IMA president and CEO Jeff Thomson in a statement. “By working together with Robert Half, we’re able to share valuable tools, information and resources to a larger pool of accounting and finance professionals.”

“The accounting and finance fields are evolving, creating a need for greater training and awareness for organizations and professionals alike,” said Paul McDonald, senior executive director at Robert Half, in a statement. “With this strategic alliance, businesses and individuals now have greater access to resources and services to help them adapt to a digital age and changes in the profession and prepare for future growth.”
