2014 Job Market Outlook
The 2014 Outlook shows that the majority (51%) of our recruiters worldwide share a positive outlook regarding the global job market in 2014—up 15% compared to the 2013 outlook. Only 13% of the surveyed harbor a negative view of the job market for 2014.
2014 Business Outlook
Sixty percent share a positive impression of the general business climate for 2014—up 18% over 2013. Only 9% of the surveyed harbor a negative view of the general business climate for 2014.
2014 Outlook by Region
Numerous markets, including Canada (92%), China (78%) and Germany (70%), are reporting an extremely positive outlook on the job market for 2014. These results show a dramatic regional shift in many attitudes about the job market from 2013 to 2014. In 2013, India had the most positive regional outlook (73%). Though India still has a very positive outlook for 2014 (63%), it does not rank in the top three markets. In some markets people harbored a more negative outlook than most. In Australia/New Zealand, 50% stated that they have a negative outlook on the job market. Africa (33%) and ASEAN (31%) also have a less positive outlook than the majority of respondents.
Mobility - Making a Career Move in 2014
With such a big change in the global outlook, it’s not surprising that 74% of the people are being more willing to make a career move in 2014 than in 2013, while 87% plan to at least look for a new opportunity this year.

53% of the respondents expected their compensation to increase in 2014, while 39% expected their compensation to stay the same in 2014 as in 2013. Only 8% expected their total compensation to decrease in 2014.
