Half of firms plan to increase staff numbers

Half of UK firms are currently planning to boost the number of workers they employ over the next 12 months, according to a new survey.

Research carried out by the CBI and recruitment consultancy Harvey Nash shows that 47 per cent of employers are predicting that their workforces will be larger by next year, while just 19 per cent are expecting to downsize.

Furthermore, small companies with fewer than 250 employees were far more likely to be looking to expand their workforce than larger ones, something described as "encouraging" by Dr Neil Bentley, CBI deputy director-general.

"It is encouraging that firms right across the UK are growing their workforces, especially smaller companies. We need to be doing all we can to get the UK working," he commented.

It comes after John Longworth, director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce, recently said that developing the capability of the UK's workforce, including those in sales jobs, is vital to ensuring that the country continues its recovery from the economic downturn.
