Lintberg Index remains relatively unchanged

The Lintberg Index, representing the chances for candidates in the top segment of the labor market, remained stabile in May, as compared to April.

After several strong months, the index took a hit in April with a decrease of 23 index points. In May, the index only recovered by one point. A positive note is that a 9% increase of newly published 100k+ positions was noticeable.

However, because of an 8% increase in responses, this has little direct effect on a higher number of the index. This also added by the fact that the number of outstanding positions has declined slightly for the third month in a row.

According to Lintberg’s Thomas Verbeeck, the first half of May was rather weak with a strong second half recovery. All in all the outlooks for June are promising, says Verbeeck.
