Fort Lauderdale Jobs Provide Less Confidence

Those with Fort Lauderdale jobs (Click here) and positions throughout Florida are losing confidence in their careers.

According to the most recent Spherion Employment Report, the Florida Employee Confidence Index decreased by 3.6 points to 43.5 during November 2009. The monthly report is conducted by Harris Interactive.

November's report shows that employee confidence has declined, as more workers express concerns about job availability and the overall health of the economy. However, 74 percent of workers in Florida believe it is not likely they will lose their jobs this year, an 11 percent increase from October.

Overall, only 17 percent of workers think the economy is improving, a 9 percent decrease from those who thought so during October. About 81 percent of workers think there are fewer jobs available, a 10 percent increase from October.

Despite high levels of believed job security, 37 percent of workers say it is likely they will make a job transition during the next 12 months, up from 26 percent who planned to do so as of October.

"With more than one million Floridians unemployed and a state unemployment rate that exceeds the national figure, it is not surprising that Florida workers are feeling a bit pessimistic about the economy and job market," Paula Franco, branch manager for Spherion Staffing Services in Florida, said. "Our latest Florida Employee Confidence Index paints this picture.

"However, it is encouraging to see that the majority of workers are expressing a sense of job security in their current positions," he added. "Despite this heightened sense of security, more than one-third of workers have revealed plans to look for a new job in the next 12 months, serving as a reminder to companies not to forgo critical retention activities as the economy eases out of this downturn."
