What's your outlook for Q2?

How’s your quarter going? What do you see coming?

That’s what we are looking to know in our latest WT Contractor Confidence Index survey.

For the first quarter, the contractor community reported soaring confidence with the Index hitting 113.3, a full 15 points higher than the previous reading we published before the November presidential election.

We called it the “Trump Bump” and the question now is whether the bump continues to grow or whether it has stabilized or is shrinking.

Take our survey and let us know what you are thinking about today’s market. The quarterly survey asks questions about growth expectations, hiring plans and upcoming investments.

Your answers are confidential but they will be aggregated. We’ll use the compiled data to calculate the Index.

Your honest responses to our survey will help us measure the current sentiment in the sector and will give a good indication where the market overall is headed.

We’ll report back in May with the complete results and a new WT Contractor Confidence Index number.
