Employee Labour Trust Index

The Employee Labour Trust Index is the international statistical survey promoted by Gi Group, through Gi Group Academy and in cooperation with OD&M Consulting, carried out in September across France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain and UK.

The survey was designed to measure employees’ level of trust in the labour market as a whole and specifically with regard to 3 areas of investigation: the organisation, the ease of re-employment and national / international institutions regulating the market.

"In our position as a global player operating in over twenty countries worldwide, we decided to conduct this survey because it is our intention to help promote a better labour world that may be more functional to the needs of both people and organisations. To this end, we are highly interested in a subject like trust in the different players acting in the labour world," says Stefano Colli-Lanzi, CEO of Gi Group. "Evidence from this new international survey confirms that structural reforms are essential".
In short, here are the main findings:
