Employers are keen on workforce growth this year, report reveals
Employers are more confident about hiring new staff and growing their workforce this year, figures published in the latest BDO Business Trends Report suggest.
The report argues that the two past months’ strong employment data means company’s hiring intentions are now “sky high”. This feeling is strengthened by the fact these levels are now stronger than the period of economic boom in the 2000s.
Nevertheless, despite positive market signals, the UK’s productivity problem, signalled by high employment and low productivity continues.
Statistics reveal Britain’s workers were less productive in the final quarter of 2014, with output per worker falling 0.2 per cent There has now been an absence in productivity growth for seven years, and productivity per worker is now 21 per cent lower than the G7 average.
In fact British workers’ output per hour has now been static during the last two years of the recovery. BDO partner, Peter Hemington, said: “While it is encouraging to see strong business confidence, the UK’s continuing poor labour productivity performance is a very significant concern.”
