Recording its biggest climb since the survey’s inception, the Randstad Employee Confidence Index was 52.4 in January 2012 from 47.4 in December 2011. U.S. workers continue to be optimistic about the economy and job market, as their macroeconomic confidence increased 8.5 points this month to 40.1.
“Economists’ expectation of a stronger and more stable U.S. job market created a strong jump-start for this first Employee Confidence Index of 2012,” says Joanie Ruge, senior vice president and chief employment analyst of Randstad Holding US. “We remain very encouraged that our latest U.S. Employee Confidence Index rose 5.0 points—the biggest increase since the survey began over seven years ago.”
