'Steady hiring climate' forecast for York Region in early 2018

'Steady hiring climate' forecast for York Region in early 2018

Hong Kong employers report positive hiring intentions for the first quarter of 2018 according to ManpowerGroup's employment outlook survey (MEOS) released on Tuesday.

New Zealand hiring intentions have slightly increased in the past three months and remained relatively stable when compared to this same period a year ago.

Florida's outlook for employment is second best in the nation, following Georgia.

In response to the staffing and consulting firm Manpower's question "How do you anticipate total employment at your location to change next season as compared to the current quarter?"

"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Windsor's first quarter Net Employment Outlook of 15 per cent is a one percentage point decrease when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook", Melarangeli said. The strongest outlooks globally are reported in the US, Japan, Taiwan and India.

Moreover, employers in the services sector and the transportation & utilities sector forecast a steady increase in staffing levels, with outlooks of +18% and +17%, respectively, their strongest Outlooks in over two years.


Meanwhile, hiring plans weaken in three sectors, most notably by 11 ppt for the finance, insurance & real estate sector and by 3 ppt for the manufacturing sector.

South Florida's job market for the first quarter of 2018 looks "promising" but weaker than a year ago.

Employers in the construction sector are also more optimistic than in the past, forecasting their strongest NEO in almost six years, of +21%, up 6 percentage points on the quarter and by 11 percentage points on the year. Five percent said they were unsure of their hiring plans.

By contrast, wholesale and retail trade showed the lowest forecast increase in staff, with hiring intentions mirroring the same quarter of this year.

ManpowerGroup Singapore country manager Linda Teo said, "The stronger hiring outlook in the Services sector reflects the expected surge in demand for IT specialists, especially those dealing with Cyber Operations and Cyber Security as more companies go digital".

USA employers report the strongest hiring intentions in 10 years as employers across the country, according to Manpower, which surveyed more than 11,500 companies.
