Healthcare workers wary of job market, but remain confident in personal ability


Third quarter findings now available for observation in the Randstad Healthcare Employee Confidence Index glean that healthcare workers are more cautious when queried about looking for new jobs, yet have become more confident when securing positions already held.

The survey of 275 workers — from physicians to health administrators and other field professionals — showcased an overall decline in confidence by 0.5 points to 53.4 in the third quarter.

"Despite a slight decrease among a few of the confidence measures, such as intentions to seek new employment and overall strength of the economy, the healthcare industry remains one of the fastest growing sectors," said Steve McMahan, executive vice president of Randstad US, Professionals, in a news release. "The reality is that healthcare jobs will be in high demand for many years to come, due to an aging population, healthcare reform and technological advances. We believe the moderate dampening of confidence levels this quarter may be largely attributed to recent economic headlines looming around the potential fiscal cliff and stock market volatility."
