September 10, 2013 – Confidence levels among the American workforce continue to show strength, according to the August Randstad Employee Confidence Index. The report shows increased optimism among workers about both the economy and their job security. This 2013 Randstad Employment Tracker was conducted by Harris Interactive between among a U.S. sample of 1,073 employed adults, aged 18 years and older. The study showed that three-in-five (61 percent) respondents are confident in the future of their current employer. “The August numbers were notably strong and continue the positive trend we have seen over the past few months, starting in April when confidence figures reached pre-recession highs,” said Jim Link, managing director, Randstad U.S. “It is also important to note that although fewer workers expressed interest in job searching, this does not exclude the possibility of top talent passively searching for other opportunities or being recruited to other organizations.” Randstad U.S. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Randstad Holding nv, a $22 billion global provider of HR services.
