World – Employees worry about economy, finds Randstad Workmonitor

05 December 2012

Randstad’s latest Workmonitor shows that over 61% of employees globally label the economic situation in their country as ‘bad’, especially in Greece (98%), Spain (96%), Hungary (94%) and Italy (94%).

European countries outside the Euro-zone are performing better with employees saying their local economy is ‘good’. This is particularly the case in Norway (94%), Switzerland (87%) and Sweden (74%).

Despite the economic downturn, 72% of those surveyed around the globe said their current employer is performing well financially. 66% are optimistic and expect the performance of their employer to further improve in 2013. However, discrepancies persist and employees in Brazil (86%), India (92%) and Hong Kong (91%) are more positive than those in Greece (32%), Luxembourg (38%) or Japan (39%).

The survey has also looked at work-life balance with the majority of employees keen on improving their situation, particularly in Norway where the number of employees saying so has grown from 47% in 2010 to 70% in 2012.To view all the results of Randstad’s Workmonitor which covers 32 countries, click here.
