Optimism About Growth in 2006

According to an annual online survey released today by Accenture, three-quarters of senior executives in North America, Europe and Asia are optimistic about the growth prospects for their companies and industries in 2006.

Among the findings:

  • CEOs officers and HR directors were the most optimistic about the growth of their organizations with nearly eight out of 10 predicting business growth in 2006.
  • 72% viewed competition as their biggest challenge compared with two-thirds (67%) who were worried about the state of the global economy
  • People factors were also loomed large, with an inability to attract and retain the best talent seen as a threat by six out of 10 of those surveyed.
