Redundant Workers Find New Jobs Fast

It has become easier for businessmen who have been made redundant to find new jobs in Sweden.

That’s according to new figures from Trygghetsrådet, a company that helps redundant employees find new work.

Last year’s figures show that it took people recently made redundant only five months to find new work, compared to six months the year before. The positions attained by new employees were often equal or higher paid than their previous jobs. Women found it easier to get a new job and often received fixed contract offers too.

The study also revealed that less people are being made redundant today than they were at the beginning of the decade.

The trend is predicted to continue into 2008.
