NFIB News Release (08/12/14)
The National Federation of Independent Business’ July Optimism Index rose 0.7 points to 95.7. There was little change in the 10 index components other than outlook for expansion and business conditions. Even though these improved, they still remain historically low.
Job creation plans continued to strengthen and rose one percentage point to a seasonally adjusted net 13%, the best reading since September 2007. Not seasonally adjusted, 16% plan to increase employment at their firm, down two points, and 6% plan reductions, up one point.
Say Goodbye to Mundane Tasks and Hello to Efficiency
Are you accustomed to using a plethora of resources to recruit the right candidates? Our research shows that the average firm spends around five hours logging in and out of systems to source candidates to fill one job. We’re excited to announce the next level in candidate sourcing: CareerBuilder Talent Discovery, a platform that has everything in one place. Stop by CareerBuilder’s booth next week at Staffing World to learn more—Booth 813 in the expo hall.
