After a very long and difficult period of waiting it seems that finally the future looks brighter. reports that “business leaders in the US are planning to hire new members of staff during 2011”, citing a recent research survey by Regus.

The research by Regus reveals 32% of firms expect to expand their workforces next year, suggesting companies are witnessing signs of recovery and sustainable upward growth.

The report suggests global unemployment trends may be reversing following rising joblessness in recent years and Regus regional vice-president Sande Golgart said: "The intention to increase headcount is a clear indicator that businesses want to be prepared to grasp the opportunities that recovering markets may throw their way."

The good trend is not only present in the US. More than 10,000 senior executives in 78 countries worldwide showed that 36 per cent of those polled planned to increase recruitment during 2011.

Manpower conducted their own survey, focusing on 2010 results and the conclusions are positive: U.S. employers anticipate a slight gain in employment levels for Quarter 4 2010.

These signs are very good for the IT recruitment also. I believe that the IT projects will soon resume and the demand for IT specialists will start to grow on the medium and long term.
