Employees may be feeling better about how their companies will perform in the coming months, but the same can’t be said for how they feel in terms of their personal employment situation.

Confidence Among Unemployed Job Seekers Reaches 3 Year High; Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey Q2 2012
Is the job market looking brighter this summer? According to the latest quarterly Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, 42% of unemployed job seekers believe they can find a job matched to their experience and compensation level in the next six months – an all-time high since Q1 2009 and an increase of six percentage points when compared to Q1 2012. Plus, the survey shows that of employees who reported cutbacks at their company, fewer employees (38%) reported layoffs or that their employer reported plans for layoffs in the past six months – an all-time low since our survey began in Q4 2008.
How are you feeling about your chances of a pay raise in the next 12 months? Are you feeling more concerned lately about layoffs at your company? In the latest Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, conducted online on its behalf by Ipsos Media, Glassdoor takes a current pulse on how employees and job seekers are feeling – not only about their expectation for a pay raise, but other factors, too. The survey monitors four key indicators of employee confidence: salary expectations, job security, re-hire probability and company outlook. Check out the highlights from this latest survey.
The New Year is off to a good start with both the employed and unemployed showing increased confidence in the job market. In the latest Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, employee optimism related to the job market, company outlook and pay raises increased in the fourth quarter of 2011. In addition, pessimism among the unemployed fell to a new low in the fourth quarter, with just 21 percent of unemployed job seekers reporting they think it is “unlikely” they will find a job in six months, down 11 points from the third quarter of 2011 to the lowest level since Glassdoor initiated this survey in 2008.
As we enter the last few months of 2011, a cloud continues to hang over the job market. In the latest Glassdoor Employment Confidence Survey, there is a growing uncertainty among job seekers about their chances of landing a job and a decreasing number of employees feeling optimistic about their company’s outlook. These findings are just the tip of the iceberg in the third quarter report.
In the recent Glassdoor Quarterly Employment Confidence Survey, job satisfaction was ironically up while pessimism about the employment market was also increasing. After three years of the job market ‘music’ being stopped and talent holding onto the chair they have, along with compensation cuts not fully restored and fears of more cost-cutting company, job satisfaction being up is quizzical.
How do we explain this rise and what does it mean to today’s HR Leaders?
Some of the reasons job satisfaction may be on the rise include:
Employees Report Growing Concern Over Job Security, Pay Raises And Job Market Amid Rising Job Satisfaction
Not sure where the economy is headed and how your career path will look in the next 6 to 12 months? You’re not alone.
It’s no secret that the job market has remained tight over the past several months, and so it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that employees are more pessimistic about their ability to get rehired within this the next six months should they lose their job. In addition, employee concerns about layoffs and pessimism about pay raises have risen to the highest levels since the height of the recession.
Today, Glassdoor released the latest Employment Confidence Survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, and found layoff concerns were up five percentage points this quarter…
The economy has been a rough ride for just about everyone and so it may not be too surprising to hear that many are planning to head for ‘greener’ pastures in less than two years.
We just released the results of our latest Employment Confidence Survey and found 73 percent of employees expect to leave their job for a new employer in the future, 38 percent expect to leave their job in less than three years, 28 percent expect to do so in less than two years and 14 percent expect to do so in less than one year.
This may be driven by rising optimism around the job market. Among full-time, part-time and/or self-employed adults, 40 percent say they believe it is “likely” they could find a new job matched to their experience and compensation levels within six months if they lost their current job – the highest level in six quarters.
That optimism doesn’t necessarily carry through employee confidence in what’s happening within companies. While employee confidence in the job market rose in the first quarter, confidence in future job security, pay raises and company outlook remained relatively flat. And while reports of layoffs are down, 40 percent of employees say their employers made changes to the number of staff, organizational structure, compensation and benefits, or other perks in the past six months. In fact, rates of pay cuts, hiring freezes and job restructurings rose in Q1 from recent quarters.
