Manufacturing and Logistics Workers Confident in Future of Employers

The Randstad Manufacturing and Logistics Employee Confidence Index, a measure of overall confidence among manufacturing and logistics workers, held steady in Q3 rising 0.3 points to 52.2. Additionally, more than half (53%) of manufacturing and logistics workers believe their current employer has a strong future, a six percent increase from last quarter. The survey was conducted online by Harris Interactive among 167 manufacturing and logistics employees. Data was collected July 9-11, August 5-7 and September 9-11, 2013, and thus does not reflect the attitudes of employees during the government shutdown.

Given that the majority of respondents project bright futures for their employers, it is not surprising that the number of respondents who said they would actively look for a new job in the next twelve months dropped 14 percentage points from the second quarter (44% to 30%).
