The quarterly Labour Market Outlook provides a set of forward-looking labour market indicators, highlighting employers’ recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions.

The survey is based on responses from 1,014 employers, many of whom are drawn from the CIPD’s membership of around 140,000 professionals. The latest report reveals that basic pay expectations remain subdued with no sign of any wage growth.
