The evidence is in, business confidence is at its highest in 5 years!
That means businesses are no longer just recovering - they’re thriving.
Data from the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) shows confidence from February 2021 to April 2021 is not just up to the highest levels since 2016, but it’s also matched by confidence in the UK economy.
A successful vaccination programme and easing of lockdown may well be playing a big part in that economic confidence, but what’s more reassuring is that this trend looks set to continue as job creation is really taking off.
Other positive signs are that job creation wasn’t just up in temporary and short-term roles, but also in permanent, medium and long-term positions.
That’s good for everyone as the whole recruitment industry can swing into action to match employers with top talent.
We’re certainly seeing the signs in our office. Are you seeing it where you work too?
