ABSTRACT
This article reports on a forecast for employment in Great Britain in 2008. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) predicts only a 0.25 percent rise in the number of jobs for the year. According to CIPD chief economist John Philpott, the bleak outlook was a result of reduced hiring and uncertainty in the private sector, coupled with government efforts to cut public-sector jobs.
