According to new research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel
and Development, 85 per cent of the 1,000 employers asked are
hoping to recruit in the near future.
The figure represents a six per cent rise on the number of bosses

wage spiral some had feared in the wake of the recent surge in the
cost of living."
