Robert Half on Australian Company Growth Optimism

In a press release "Cost of living pressures are why workers are less confident than employers on company growth this year", the recruitment firm Robert Half says, "89% of Australian business leaders are more confident in their company's growth prospects in 2024 compared to 2023"  and "72% of workers feel the same."

It claims that "younger staff (are) more optimistic about 2024’s growth prospects. Millennials have the highest confidence (82%) along with Gen Z (80%), and although the majority of Gen X (76%) and Baby Boomer (65%) hold optimism for increased growth in 2024, their confidence levels are not as buoyant."

Robert Half says the survey "was conducted online in November 2023 by an independent research company, surveying 500 hiring managers (including 100 CFOs and 100 CIOs) and 1,000 office workers from companies across Australia."

The release does not include data on the questions asked and whether they explicitly use the word optimism or optimistic.
