Michele Salomon

Samantha, great question. My name is Michele Salomon and I work with Spherion on their monthly tracker of employee confidence.

In terms of the Spherion Employee Confidence index one answer to your question is, yes. Since the lows reported in February and March of 2009, the index has rebounded, reaching 49.1 in both November and December 2009, with Spherion noting a rise in the need for temporary workers, a first sign of things turning around.

So, hopefully this does suggest that things are on the rise.

If you want to have a look at the most recent release, including historical data, please visit Spherion's website at:
