Employee Confidence at Record Highs
Employee confidence around the job market, job security, pay raises and future business outlook appears quite strong according to a new Glassdoor survey.
+ 53 percent of American employees believe if they lost their job they would be able to find a new job matched to their experience and current compensation levels in the next six months.
+ 46 percent of U.S. employees expect a pay raise of cost-of-living increase in the next 12 months.
+ Concerns about being laid off have reached a new low, with 14 percent of employees reporting concern they could be laid off in the next six months.
+ 42 percent of employees believe their company's future business outlook will improve in the next six months.
"In 2009 our country faced its worst recession in years and uncertainty made employment confidence weak," said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert. "Today, employee confidence around the job market, job security and likelihood of a pay raise is among the highest it's been in the past seven years. We'll keep an eye on employee confidence around employers' future business outlook as recent market uncertainty could be impacting employee optimism related to company performance."
