A survey of Michigan employers suggests more hiring is in store this year.
The Business Leaders for Michigan survey quizzes some of the state’s largest employers, representing about a third of the state’s economy. It finds more than half are optimistic about prospects for the next six to 18 months, says BLM’s Kelly Chesney.
“They’re feeling optimistic because the economy is growing again,” she says. “We’re seeing lower energy costs. These all translate into a growing confidence for our employers.”
