A 'take a breath' quarter promises Q4 recruitment growth, according to the BMS Sales Index report Q3 2012
Candidate confidence and salaries are rising, and just last week the Office for National Statistics reported a 1% increase in GDP for the third quarter of the year.
But firms that cut sales teams or held recruitment could be in for a surprise. Many didn't. They held on to their good people, and even brought more in. It was a risky strategy, but they’ll have the edge if the economy grows. And the signs look good it just might.
