The BOSS is in.
The verdict: According to 400 business leaders in Hawaii, the news remains bleak on three key measures, including jobs, revenue and profit. In each case, more companies said they experienced declines during the past year than increases. However, the outlook for the coming year remains somewhat positive. Thirty-four percent of those surveyed predict the overall economy will improve in 2012, while 24 percent foresee a decline.
In general, construction companies are performing worse than the average Hawaii company, but industry leaders share the same level of optimism for the state’s overall economy as the average local business leader.
