June 8, 2011 – The SFN Group Employee Confidence Index increased 0.5 points to 53.9 in May. The Index, which measures workers' confidence in their personal employment situation and optimism in the economic environment, shows that more workers are confident in the strength of the economy and in their ability to find a new job. Moreover, two in five workers reported that they are likely to make a job transition in the next 12 months. “Looking back over the past several months, our employee confidence index has tracked improvements alongside growing employer confidence in the health of the U.S. economy,” said Roy Krause, president and CEO of SFN Group, Inc. “However, as current data suggests, we may be experiencing some inconsistency in the rate of economic recovery. The online survey was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of the SFN Group. It surveyed 1,268 employed U.S. adults, aged 18 and over between May 10 and 12, 2011.
