The HR Coach Research Institute has released its latest quarterly index. According to the research: "The last quarter has shown a marked change in business sentiment in Australia with an increase of 6% in overall business confidence. The last half of 2011 saw a 15% drop in business confidence so the increase offers welcome respite. There is, however, a lot of ground to make up from the highs of 2007 and early 2008.
For the first time since 2008 wage pressure looks to be back on the agenda with an 18% increase in wage expectations by employers"
