Randstad's 4Q 2015 Employee Confidence Index (ECI) shows that 55% of workers are confident in their ability to find a new job and 34% believe more jobs are available. Atlanta Business Chronicle editor Carla Caldwell reports on the survey, which reveals that while overall confidence dipped, it has remained near a record high since its 2004 inception.
Randstad reports that the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment report for October 2015 delivered a stronger jobs report than had been seen in previous months:
Businesses hired new workers at the fastest pace of the year, adding 307,000 new jobs in October. Long-awaited improvement came for workers' pay as it rose at the fastest year-over-year pace since the U.S. emerged from the recession in mid-2009, Randstad said.
