About this download

The Labour Market Outlook 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 1,026 employers, many of whom are drawn from the CIPD’s membership of more than 130,000 professionals.

The latest report shows that near-term employment prospects have risen to a six-and-a-half-year high. This quarter’s net employment balance has also increased since the winter 2013–14 report and this is the highest net balance score since autumn 2007.

"Taken as a whole, the data suggests that employment prospects will continue
to improve in all sectors of the economy in the second quarter of 2014."
