Workers are hopeful for a better 2013 when it comes to jobs and the economy, according to a survey by Randstad US. The survey found that 59 percent of employees believe the job market will pick up next year. In addition, 47 percent predict their employers will expand their workforces in 2013.
Only 33 percent of workers believe their company will lay off people in 2013.
“With the election and economic issues at home and abroad, a cloud of uncertainty had caused many employees to remain skeptical around future jobs and employability in 2012,” said Jim Link, managing director of human resources for Randstad US. “Today we see employees are very positive about their future prospects and are hopeful to regain any economic momentum lost.”
The survey included a nationwide sample of 3,417 adults aged 18 and older who are currently employed full time.
