Survey: Recession-Weary Workers Appear More Upbeat -- At Least To CFOs

With the U.S. economic recovery seemingly on hold, workers' moods would be expected to be anything but improving. But a new survey shows that some workers, at least, are feeling more upbeat.

When asked if employee morale has changed to any degree compared to a year ago, 42 percent of chief financial officers polled said that workers' moods had improved at least somewhat in the last 12 months, according to Accountemps, which supplies temporary personnel to accounting and other finance-related businesses.
