Americans Feeling More Confident About Employers Stability
Posted: Feb 18,2015
New data shows most American workers have a renewed sense of optimism regarding their employment situation, following years of uncertainty regarding their ability to keep their job.
Nearly three-quarters of employees believe they are unlikely to lose their jobs in the next 12 months. This was a report that was issued by The Randstad Employment.
Additionally, the survey showed 61 percent of employees are confident in the future of their employer, up 2 percentage points from last month.
Since the survey's inception more than seven years ago, the Randstad Employee Confidence Index, which measures workers' confidence in their personal employment situation and optimism in the economic environment, recorded its biggest one-month gain.
A quarter of U.S. workers said they believe the economy is getting stronger, a 7 percent increase from December.
In addition, only 52 percent of the surveyed employees believe fewer jobs are available, an 8 percentage point decreases from last month.
According to Joanie Ruge, senior vice president and chief employment analyst of Randstad Holding U.S, Economists' expectation of a stronger and more stable U.S. job market created a strong jumpstart for this first Employee Confidence Index of 2012.
There is no denying that this economic recovery has been volatile, but as the company heads into 2012, various U.S. economic reports are pointing to what many hope and believe will be an improving job market.
