Adecco Staffing US has released its annual Job Market Perspectives white paper. While 2011 started with cautious optimism for job growth and the risk of a double-dip recession, the economy was still able to average an additional 130,000 jobs a month and close out the year with the national unemployment rate at 8.5%. Based on this, 2012 will have to be marked with consistent job growth to continue the economic and labor market recovery.
Adecco’s 2012 Job Market Perspectives report examines both the current and future state of the labor market while also exploring how trends in U.S. economic development, as well as the upcoming presidential election, will impact America’s work force. “As we turn the corner on past economic troubles, we are optimistic about the potential of the job market in 2012,” says Joyce Russell, president of Adecco Staffing US.
