Provides a quarterly update on key HR, economic and labour market statistics. The aim of the survey is to produce an industry-valued benchmark of key HR statistics that can be used by members, employers and government. The survey is based on responses from 1,089 employers.

The report suggests that employment will again grow strongly in the final quarter of 2014, with near-term employment expectations rising to a seven-year high. However, a growing labour supply means that pay rises are likely to remain subdued.

"Overall, the combination of a growing number of people seeking work, reduced churn
amongst the existing workforce and relative stability of skills shortages goes
some way to explaining the persistence of weak pay growth."
