Study Finds Confidence in Economy

July 8, 2013 – America's workforce is reporting some of the highest levels of confidence seen since the recession, according to the Randstad Employee Confidence Index. Measuring employee's attitude toward the economy, their employers, and even their ability to find a new job, the Randstad Index rose to 56.8 points in June, indicating a 2.0-point uptick in overall confidence among U.S. workers since May. The online survey, conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Randstad in June, included 1,351 employed U.S. adults ages 18 and older. “Our Index figures align with the June Consumer Confidence Index, which saw the most promising signs in five years,” said Jim Link, managing director, Randstad U.S. “Our Index also found over a third of employees are likely to seek a new job in the next 12 months – a sign that the economy has better opportunities available in the eyes of job seekers. The recent strengthening of both the stock market and residential property values are two factors that may help build confidence of the American labor market in months to come.”
