The CBI has launched the 2020 Employment Trends Survey (ETS) in collaboration with Pertemps Network Group. Businesses are encouraged to complete the survey to help shape the government’s agenda for the recovery plan for jobs and growth.

It’s one of the longest-running surveys providing insights that will inform strategic policy direction and a report will be published in September, providing an overview of the current employment landscape amongst businesses across all sectors on a national scale.

The Employment Trends Survey provides an indicator of business forecasts across various issues relating to job, pay, competitiveness, diversity and inclusion and employment relations. This year, it also pays particular attention to Covid-19 and views on the ‘new normal.’ CBI work across all of the issues raised within the ETS and use these as a crucial indicator of the strength of the UK economy, to inform policy decisions within the government.

The CBI revealed that there remains significant uncertainty around the UK economic outlook, as the recovery depends on continued progress in the fight against COVID-19. The COVID-19 crisis has presented the potential for economic ‘scarring’, whereby job losses, business closures, and reduced investment levels would damage the UK economy in the longer-term.

It’s been an interesting year in business and one of the most uncertain. Despite all this, the recruitment market will play a leading role in restoring confidence and helping people find work. At Pertemps, we look forward to 2021 and the exciting developments it will bring.
