Confidence returns, slowly

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

A survey released in September suggests that more than half of North West businesses plan to increase their workforce over the next 12 months.  Fifty-four per cent of companies surveyed said that recruitment plans would go ahead, while 51 per cent are confident their business will grow over the coming year.

A spokesman for the company that carried out the research  said: “This appears to indicate that recruitment and training are beginning to re-emerge as key priorities for UK businesses as they look to the future and plan if, and how, they will take advantage of any emerging opportunities.”
