ABSTRACT
This article reports on the results of a research study that was published, in 2001, by the Cranfield School of Management in partnership with the periodical "The Daily Telegraph. For the first time since December 1999, a majority of managers and directors in Great Britain in manufacturing expect a fall in employment over the next six months. The fall comes after anticipated recruitment activity in manufacturing peaked at the end of 2000 before the slowdown evidenced in successive surveys in 2001. recruitment activity is expected to be lower in manufacturing than in the service sector. Pay increases are expected to be substantially higher in the service sector than in manufacturing. While manufacturers indicated they do expect demand for their products to increase, they believe the increase will be much lower than in previous quarters.
