Boulder Job Forcast; Wobbekind, CU Boulder Leeds School

Professor Richard Wobbekind, the Executive Director of the Leeds School of Business Research Division at the University of Colorado in Boulder reported recently that the forecast for job growth looks promising for sectors such as construction.
He further said that both Colorado, and the Boulder area should see a continuation of new jobs in 2012 as the economic recovery continues.

Growth in construction hasn’t been very active in Colorado, so this is encouraging news to hear.

Steady growth for the area seems to be the dominant theme moving into 2012.

The forecast estimates that approximately 23,000 new jobs will be added during 2012, and Wobbekind commented that the psychological effects of these new jobs will likely have a positive impact on the overall economy in our area.

I think this continuation of a positive attitude, combined with a sense of more certainty and building confidence in the local economy and marketplace have a strong impact on the future.

Wobbekind added that in recent years many businesses have held back on adding employees while they try to increase productivity and efficiency. However, his thoughts seem to be that the tide has turned and most businesses here have reached the point where increasing staff is necessary now to continue to grow.
