“Question of the month”

19 March 2008

In july CE asked respondents about changes in the number of people employed by their company. Asked how their company headcount had changed, 56% of respondents said more people were employed now compared to a year ago. Some 30% said their payroll numbers were unchanged, while only 14% said their staffing levels had fallen.

This all seems to underline the growth that is being seen in the industry, although life is clearly not without its problems. One respondent commented, “The problem is not only finding staff, but keeping them. Young people do not stay with the company any more.”
