Blog: Fashion personnel more confident of job stability
Petah Marian | 7 March 2012
Despite the swathe of high profile designer moves happening just now, the improving economy has helped workers in the fashion sector to become more confident about their job stability, according to Celeste Gudas, the founder of fashion industry recruitment company 24 Seven.
However, she tells just-style that soft benefits and professional development remain important for personnel in the sector.
"As the February 2012 retail sales reports have shown, the economy is continuing to turn around, improving consumer confidence and driving customers back into the stores," she says.
"Professionals and prospective candidates are also feeling more confident about job stability and the future of their company's growth, but employers must continue to be sensitive to their employees needs for soft benefits and professional development opportunities in order to maintain job satisfaction."
The comments come as 24 Seven launches its sixth annual Salary and Job Satisfaction Survey, which includes European countries for the first time. The survey provides direct industry insight into how executives, managers and staffers are compensated and the general mood in the job market.
"As our clients continue to expand their global strategies and reach, the addition of Europe to the cross section of professionals being surveyed will help all of us to better understand today's job market worldwide," says Gudas.
