Randstad Engineering Employment Report: Worker Confidence Reaches Highest Level in Four Years

PRNewswire (05/15/12)

The Randstad Engineering Employee Confidence Index, a measure of overall confidence among U.S. engineering workers, was 64.9 in the first quarter of 2012—the highest level of confidence recorded since the third quarter of 2007, when the index stood at 66.2. The first-quarter results show high levels of optimism when it comes to engineers feeling confident in their own personal employment situation.

“Given the strength of the engineering industry, it was not surprising that the Randstad Engineering Employee Confidence Index was the highest among all other professions tracked,” says Richard Zambacca, president of Randstad Engineering. “According to the Department of Labor, there were more than 1.6 million jobs in engineering at the end of Q1 2012 and this is expected to grow at 11% over the next 10 years. Based on this projected growth, it is likely that our Index will continue to report high levels of confidence, on both a macroeconomic and personal level.”
