Equipment Leasing Hiring Index Hits Historical High, ZRG Partners

According to the ZRG Partners Hiring Index Report, 2014 ended the year with the GELAF index at 81.2, the highest water mark since the inception of the index in 2012. The GELAF index measures hiring demand through a proprietary set of job boards and indicators tracked globally by ZRG Partners.
For the year, the U.S. continues to show the biggest spike in demand for talent and we believe part of the increase relates to difficulty in filling open roles as the labor market has tightened and shifted to a candidate driven market.
The Emerging Markets ended the year at 12.5, a slight increase from January levels but Brazil and Russia both dropped substantially. China did lift up the BRICS with 2014 increases in hiring demand.
In the UK/Europe, the general outlook is better at year end with a slight increase in openings. The UK is still the most robust region with Germany still lagging in demand, but France showed a rebound in Q4 with the first visible signs of a job recovery in lending in some time.
