Longer Term Hiring Plans Remain Stable

The REC's monthly report on jobs has shown that longer term hiring plans have slightly improved.
The report showed that in the next 12 months 59% of employers are planning to grow their permanent workforce while 35% intend to keep it at the same level. This in turn has boosted the overall confidence 'Barometer' rating which is up three points suggesting that despite continuing economic uncertainty, employers are now taking a more robust view of their workforce plans for 2012.
Commenting on the latest data, Roger Tweedy, the REC's Director of Research said:
"Despite latest forecasts pointing to slower economic growth, there are at least a few positive signs for the jobs market. Permanent employment opportunities will remain constrained in the short term but longer term hiring intentions provide glimmers of hope."
Flame Health believe that this is great news for the economy.
