More companies expecting stabilization in 2023 – Le Journal des Entreprises – Maine-et-Loire
2023 seems to draw stability compared to the end of 2022, according to the economic survey carried out by the CCI Le Mans Sarthe among 610 companies (including 43% of shops and services) in January 2023. Most have less than 10 employees (83%). Executive morale is at the same level as in 2022, with a score of 3 out of 5. 43% of them believe they will maintain a stable turnover on 1er half of 2023. This group is growing by 4 points compared to the 2n/a half of 2022. The permanent workforce of companies remains stable, at 70%. The uncertainty is reflected in the employment forecasts for non-permanent staff: the part of stable forecasts drops from 71% to 55% of respondents, while 27% do not know if they will use this workforce. . The treasuries seem to be experiencing a decline in difficulties. Admittedly, 29% of companies expect to see a reduction in their cash flow on the 1er half of 2023, but they were almost half in the previous half. The proportions are identical for the margin rate. On the other hand, order books are running out of steam in 2023, and 32% of managers believe the sustainability of their business is threatened.
