Randstad’s employee confidence index for the U.S. rose three points in November to a reading of 54.5 after falling in October in the wake of the government shutdown.
Employees reported higher levels of confidence in the economy and job market, according to Randstad. And the number of workers indicating the strength of the economy has improved rose by eight percentage points in November.
“The government shutdown had a minimal impact on the job market,” said Jim Link, chief HR officer, Randstad North America. “Despite the recent macroeconomic events, we remain encouraged by high levels of worker confidence when it comes to their outlook on the strength of the economy and availability of jobs.”
The index is based on a survey of 977 employed U.S. adults.
