I was looking forward to the second quarter straw poll results. While the hard
data pointed to a real slowdown in the first quarter - business expectations
and ‘gut feel’ indicated we would be booming.
The exuberance of the political change in DC started off strong with gains
in the market and hope for a better economy, but the reality is that we’re
doing no better now, and perhaps worse, than we were last quarter.
The poll indicates we are in a wait and see mode.Companies are expecting improvement, but not yet seeing it so their staffing levels are mostly remaining the same.
We thank all the respondents for your participation each quarter and remind you that all feedback is anonymous. Get this quarter's full report HERE.
