2. 2. Objective To gauge perceptions of job availability and hiring. To identify trends in the Middle East Job market. To provide an understanding of the required key skill sets and qualifications.
3. 3. Calculation of Indices and Benchmarking The indices which concentrate on measuring Job market are the : Jobs Index (JI) Hiring Expectancy Index(HEI) It aims to measure the potential opportunities that are present in the market. The Jobs Index is composed of the following two questions:  Will you be hiring in the next 3 months either for your organization or for your clients if you are in the recruitment field or an HR consultant?  With regard to your future expectations, do you think you will be hiring in a year’s time from now either for your organization or for your clients if you are in the recruitment field or an HR consultant? – this question measures the HEI.
4. 4. Calculation of Indices and Benchmarking The index is calculated according to the following formula: Index Value = (Current period value / Base period value) * 100 Current period’s value for each question is calculated as = (((Number of optimistic answers – Number of pessimistic answers) / Achieved sample)*100) + 100 Current period values for each question are summed up to obtain current period’s value for the overall index Current period’s value calculated for October 2009 would be fixed as the base period value The base period of the index is set as October 2009 and the value of the index at this period is 100 The index has a point of scale ranging from 0 to 200 The JI is calculated from questions 1 and 2 The HEI is calculated using only the second question JI and HEI would be calculated separately for each country
