According to Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry, “These results pinpoint the confusion in the marketplace. On one hand, executives do not think a jobs bill can counteract the impact of the faltering European economy. Yet, on the other hand, executives believe that state and local hiring is going in the wrong direction.”

“The confusion is understandable though. While a jobs bill can stimulate public sector jobs, executives do not think it can do enough to truly impact the economy. Plus, the fact that executives believe there is a strong need to increase construction jobs indicates that they think we need to invest in infrastructure—yet it is still not enough to solve the present economic woes,” Burnison concluded.
