Hiring Across Sectors To Go Up Survey

Hiring Across Sectors To Go Up Survey

One in five US employers plan to grow their workforce in the three months ahead, according to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey of more than 11,500 USA employers.

Nationally, Manpower's survey of more than 1,900 employers indicated that 20 per cent plan to increase staffing in the second quarter, while three per cent anticipate cutbacks.

Modest hiring plans are reported in the mining and construction sector with an outlook of +7%, and in the transportation and utilities sector, where the outlook is +6%. While there won't be layoffs, hiring as such will be lower than in previous quarters. "As businesses in the country look to make smart decisions around their financial investments, take advantage of the economic improvements and invest wisely around environmental factors like the drought, the finance, insurance, real estate and business services sector is gaining momentum", says Van den Barselaar. Similarly, employers in the Services sector report a decline of three percentage points compared to the same period in 2017.

Employers expect to increase staffing levels in all seven industry sectors during the upcoming quarter. Hiring plans improve in five countries and territories year-over-year, decline in two and are unchanged in one.

[1] The Net Employment Outlook is calculated by subtracting the percentage of employers anticipating a decrease in hiring activity from the percentage of employers anticipating an increase in employment. Strong outlooks for Professional & Business Services (+24%) and Wholesale & Retail Trade (+23%) point to demand-driven growth in line with increased wages.

Meanwhile, the hiring scene is looking up in other countries, too.

Employers in all four regions expect to increase payrolls during the next three months. Elsewhere, medium employers report steady hiring prospects with an outlook of +11%, while outlooks stand at +5% and +3% for small- and micro-size employers, respectively. Globally, employers forecast varying levels of job gains in 43 of 44 countries and territories during the April-June time frame, including Croatia where employers, surveyed for the first time, report healthy hiring intentions based on unadjusted survey data.

The strong national result is unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago, but declines by three percentage points quarter-on-quarter.

Across the country, ManpowerGroup forecasts a strong hiring climate, with nearly 30 per cent of employers predicting they will hire employees in the second quarter.

The overall net outlook score of 10 per cent is 1 per cent lower than the last quarter and down 4 per cent from the same period (April-June) of 2017.
