The latest Employment Trends Survey released by CBI/Pertemps Network Group predicts that the United Kingdom’s labour market will see continued job growth in 2017, finding that four in ten firms will grow their workforce. And for the fourth year in a row, the survey has revealed that growth in permanent job opportunities will outstrip temporary recruitment. The survey, however, does demonstrate a greater concern about the UK’s future relationship with the European Union. Most companies have taken a positive approach to the concern and have even been able to provide increases in pay, while remaining committed to creating prosperity. Ultimately, companies that place inclusion and staff engagement in the forefront are more productive and able to retain their workforce, said Neil Carberry, CBI director for people and skills policy.
