Nearly half of surveyed business communicators expect gradual economic improvement over the next 12 months. Additional findings in the survey conducted by the New York chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (NY/IABC) and Trident Communications finds that about 1 in 3 communicators expect the economy to remain unchanged. Given this outlook, it’s little surprise that nearly 2 out of 3 professionals in this survey also expect to see business communications gradually improving as well. In addition, a similar number feel their department size will remain unchanged.
