A survey by the National Association of Corporate Directors indicates corporate directors continue to be positive about the economy and hiring in 2014. The association’s Board Confidence Index recently registered a score of 63.1. Any reading above 50 indicates a positive outlook on the markets. Directors note that the top challenges in attracting and retaining talent are competitive compensation pressures, a lack of qualified candidates, and insufficient internal management development.
