MELVILLE, N.Y., Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Adecco Staffing US, part of the world’s largest recruitment and workforce solutions provider, is pleased to announce the release of its annual Job Market Perspectives white paper following the distribution of 2012’s first Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report which indicated a gain of 243,000 jobs, a decreased unemployment of 8.3% for the month of January– the fifth consecutive month the rate has fallen.
While 2011 started with cautious optimism for job growth and the risk of a double-dip recession, the economy was still able to average an additional 130,000 jobs a month and close out the year with the national unemployment rate at 8.5%. Based on this, 2012 will have to be marked with consistent job growth to continue the economic and labor market recovery.
Adecco’s 2012 Job Market Perspectives report examines both the current and future state of the labor market while also exploring how trends in U.S. economic development, as well as the upcoming presidential election, will impact America’s workforce.
Topics discussed in the 2012 Job Market Perspectives report include:
Significant workforce trends of 2011 and 2012 including the unemployment rate, sector growth and the global economic impact on the US workforce
The role of the labor market on the 2012 presidential election
