Improving Employment Conditions

More firms said they plan to hire full-time, permanent workers in 2011 than did this year, according to data released by job site

Almost one-quarter of employers — 24% — said they plan to hire full-time, permanent workers in 2011. That compares with 20% in 2010, and 14% in 2009.
Seven percent of employers said they plan to decrease workers in 2011, down from 9% this year and 16% last year, according to the survey. Meanwhile, 58% expect no change in the level of staff, and 11% are unsure.

Hiring for part-time and temporary workers is also gaining, according to In the next 12 months, 13% of firms said they expect to hire part-time employees, up from 11% this year and 9% last year.

Among firms that expect to increase full-time, permanent workers in 2011, here are the top sectors: sales, information technology, customer service, engineering, technology, administrative, business development, marketing, research/development, and accounting/finance.

Keep in mind that this is before Bernanke's money-printing manipulated "recovery" becomes even more clear. Expect the data to get even better...and then the inflation.

  1. Wenzel, I wish that you and Mike Shedlocke would debate each other over inflation and deflation. His views are so different from yours.
