Optimism reigns

NZ employers remain optimistic about employment growth over the next six months according to the Morgan and Banks Job Index Survey for January June 2000.
Almost 40 percent surveyed planned to increase permanent staff, versus 15.7 percent who would drop levels. Geographically, levels of optimism are almost identical between the upper North and South islands.
Information technology had the highest level of optimism, followed by tourism, legal, engineering and advertising/marketing sectors.
Consistent with the last survey period, the high level of optimism nationally comes from small and medium sized businesses. Small business employers (under 20 staff) were the most optimistic with 48.6 percent expecting increases in staff numbers in the next six months and only 8.3 percent forecasting decreases.
