'Moderate' spring hiring expected in Cornwall: Manpower

'Moderate' spring hiring expected in Cornwall: Manpower

"In the coming times, technology will change the job market dynamics and individuals need to adopt skillsets to remain employable", said AG Rao, group managing director at ManpowerGroup India.

"While the country still faces challenges in terms of repairing years of economic sluggishness, promises of policy certainty and consistency seem to have had a further positive effect on confidence and the strength of the economy thus far". Public and social sector employers report modest hiring plans with an outlook of +7%, while some payroll gains are forecast for the mining and quarrying sector, where the outlook stands at +6%.

Those are the findings from a survey conducted by workforce analysts at ManpowerGroup. Similarly, employers in the Services sector report a decline of three percentage points compared to the same period in 2017.

The impact of a softer outlook in the Mining & Construction sector can be seen in Queensland where hiring expectations are down three percentage points year-on-year as the state deals with an end to the frenetic pace of apartment building in Brisbane over recent years. The strongest labour market is anticipated by Wholesale & Retail Trade sector employers with a Net Employment Outlook of +21%.

Among the generally positive hiring trends expressed for the Asia-Pacific Region, the country that expressed the most caution was China (+8 percent), where companies have shown only a minor increase in optimism towards hiring over the past three consecutive quarters.

Around 16% of the respondents foresaw higher staffing levels, five percentage points lower than in the previous quarter and two percentage points weaker than the second quarter of 2017, the report said.

Organisation-size comparisons Participating employers are categorised into one of four organisation sizes: Micro businesses have less than 10 employees, small businesses have 10-49 employees, medium businesses have 50-249 employees, and large businesses have 250 or more employees.

Manpower is out with its employment outlook survey today (Tuesday) on hiring intentions for April through June.

On the regional level, 20 percent of Midwest employers expect to hire more workers for the second quarter, the strongest labor market for the region since 2001.

With seasonal variations removed from the data, the survey predicts a 14 per cent increase in hiring; a 2 per cent increase compared to the previous quarter, and an increase of 7 per cent from this time past year.

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