Future Forecast: Expectations for 2013 (December 2012)

Future Forecast: Expectations for 2013The latest in the CMI's Future Forecast series, Expectations for 2013, shows that positivity among managers regarding their organisation’s prospects has tipped over the 50% mark.


While 2012 has been a more difficult year for businesses than many envisaged, with uncertainty likely to continue into 2013, managers are, on the whole, more positive than negative about the year to come across a range of measures, including job security, organisational performance and job market confidence.


Key findings from the report include:

  • 68 per cent of managers now feel secure in their jobs, up 6 per cent from 2011
  • More managers are not expecting redundancies in 2013 than are expecting them (49 per cent compared to 45 per cent)
  • Managers’ confidence in the job market has increased – 47 per cent now think it’s likely that they’d get a new job within three months if they were made redundant, compared to 37 per cent in 2011
  • Almost half of managers (46 per cent) are optimistic about staff morale in 2013, compared to 31 per cent who are pessimistic.
