2018 kicks off with higher worker confidence, driven by worker optimism about the likelihood of promotion.
By Larry Basinait
In the first quarter of 2018, the Worker Confidence Index (WCI) increased by 2.6 points for the third consecutive quarter. The WCI now stands at 107.1. Of the four elements that determine the WCI, likelihood of promotion increased the most, improving by 9.7 points. Another component, likelihood of a raise, also improved by 4.6 points. The job security and trust in company leadership indices had modest declines, but remain similar to the first quarter of 2017.
