Survey: Most employers done with job cuts

A new survey from Right Management shows that a majority of Midwest employers are done with cutbacks in 2011.

In the survey, 57 percent said virtually no cutbacks; 19 percent said a small number of cutbacks; 14 percent said a modest number of cutbacks; 3 percent said significant cutbacks; and 9 percent didn't know or had no opinion.

"For the past couple of years, organizations have cut costs and laid off staff," Joanne Stroud of Right Management said in a release. "Most organizations have very little, if anything, left to cut. They're at a point where they need to make a greater investment in talent to ensure strategic viability."
