The most encouraging thing about the results of our online survey in this issue is that confidence is growing about new jobs becoming available at companies. Of the 542 Oregon Business readers surveyed, 35% said jobs would likely grow at their company, which is up over last year.  And a lot more readers think that the biggest factor driving those new jobs will be an improving economy (25% vs. 8% last year). Research partner CFM Strategic Communications conducted the online survey in late January.
