Canadians increasingly confident in job security

The latest ADP survey will make happy reading for employers, who are likely to benefit from employees’ increased confidence.

The latest ADP survey should make happy reading for employers after it was revealed Canadians are increasingly confident in their job stability.

"A confident workforce is a key ingredient in building a strong employer brand,” stressed ADP’s Virginia Brailey.

“Confident employees are more focused and generally more engaged, which means they are comfortable with taking risks and innovating,” she added. “This can lead to better performance and productivity."

The ADP Canada Sentiment Survey found that the vast majority of Canadians (86 per cent) are confident or even more confident in the stability of their jobs versus the way they felt a year ago.

Millennials were found to be the optimistic with almost half (46 per cent) saying they are more confident in the stability of their jobs than they were one year ago.

A smaller percentage of older workers, particularly those ages 55-64 (24 per cent), are more confident than a year ago, though most report they feel about the same as last year (57 per cent of workers 35 and older).

Almost half (47 per cent) of Atlantic Canadians are more confident in the stability of their jobs than they were one year ago.

Conversely, a quarter of Albertans are less confident in the stability of their jobs than they were one year ago.
