New York — Oct. 1
U.S. workers are reporting the highest level of job security since October 2008, according to the September Randstad U.S. Employee Confidence Index.
Despite a slight drop — down 2.3 points to 55.7 in September — in overall employee confidence, which includes their outlook on the economy and their employers, the steady improvement in sentiment around job security was marked by more than three-quarters of respondents feeling unlikely to lose their current job.
The Randstad Employment Tracker was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Randstad in September and included 1,025 employed U.S. adults ages 18 and older.
Although employees display stronger feelings of job security, more than one-third are likely to look for a new job in the next 12 months, the survey said. It also showed that nearly three-fifths of respondents are confident in the future of their current employer.
