More hiring could be on the way, according to CEOs

What do CEOs think about the future of hiring within their respective companies? According to one survey conducted by the Business Roundtable, many expect growth in the coming year.

The figures presented by the source show remarkable improvements in this field even since the first quarter of 2014. At that time, 37 percent of CEOs surveyed said that they believed they would add new people to the company. The second quarter has seen that number jump up to 43 percent.

This likely means a more optimistic environment when it comes to hiring in general, and if that's the case, companies eager to devote effort to executive recruitment processes can do so.

In its coverage of this study, The Wall Street Journal quoted Roundtable Chairman Randall Stephenson on the factors associated with the uptick.

"There's some level of optimism in terms of hiring, but it's rare I would suggest that you see hiring move up without investment moving up," he said. Stephenson also referenced potential geopolitical factors that might contribute to instability.

Better hiring numbers overall don't necessarily mean it's a good time for an expansion of your c-level staff, of course, but it can show that companies are more confident and have the resources to invest more heavily in finding people for their open positions.

Because even periods of growth can bring uncertainty, it's important for your business to employ executive search consultants who will deliver strong results no matter what is happening in the market generally. By using these services, you can make an informed, favorable decision about whom to bring aboard.
