2010 Survey Predicts Job Market Improvement
July 6, 2010

Plastics industry professionals report a gradually improving employment market, according to a Spring 2010 survey by the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and Gros Executive Recruiters.

Dennis Gros, president of Gros Executive Recruiters, characterizes the survey results as relief and reality: “Relief that we’re finally on a rebound. Reality that there’s no miraculous cure for high unemployment. Improvement will occur day by day.”

Most glaring is the historical difference in the number of employees who reported they are somewhat to actively interested in finding a new job within the next 12 months. In 2007, the percentage was 62%. This year, it’s 43%.

The average of total cash compensation was $105,825 for the calendar year 2009. This compares to $103,482 in 2008.

The survey of 958 professionals was conducted during three weeks in May, 2010. For more information on survey results, visit: www.4spe.org
