Global Job Confidence Index 2020

The DSJ Global Job Confidence Index 2020 is a new annual report that aims to measures confidence in the supply chain labor market. This report aims to answer some questions about what global supply chain workforce is thinking:

  • Do they find their jobs secure?

  • Are they planning to stay with their current employer?

  • Are they confident that they can find a new opportunity in three months if they got let go?

The index reports on professionals’ confidence in the economy, getting or holding a job, their compensation and bonus, and whether the normal push-and-pull factors in employment have changed. We surveyed respondents from the Asia Pacific between February and March and respondents from Europe, the Middle East, and the US between March and May. Coincidentally, we captured how their confidence changed with the onset and spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
