  • Introduction
    A Comparison of the Financial Challenges to the U.S. and Global Economy poll data from October 2008, March 2009, October 2009 and March 2010.
    In October 2008, SHRM conducted a series of polls that looked at the impact of the financial crisis on companies from a variety of angles. Several of the poll questions were updated in March 2009, October 2009 and March 2010 to determine how business were adjusting their strategies in response to changes in the economy.
    When possible, similar questions and response options from October 2008, March 2009, October 2009 and March 2010 are compared with one another.
    Respondents were also asked to project how their company is likely to proceed in the next six months,assuming that the current financial challenges continue.
