Bright outlook for Florida hiring, ManpowerGroup says

Bright outlook for Florida hiring, ManpowerGroup says

The seasonally adjusted Net Employment Outlook for Q2 2018 is +18 percent, according to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey of more than 11,500 USA employers.

The survey commissioned by ManpowerGroup says that 10 per cent of area employers plan to hire during the quarter, an increase of five per cent compared to the same time period previous year.

ManpowerGroup Australia & New Zealand managing director Richard Fischer believes the national NEO of +10% is clear evidence of a strong labour market while noting that there are distinct differences across the country.

"The strength of the employment outlook across the country continues to bode well for gains in household income over the coming year". The weakest hiring plans are reported in Mining, Government Information and Nondurable Goods Manufacturing.

The latest data paints a picture of significant differences in hiring expectations across the country, both on a sector-by-sector basis and when compared regionally.

However, outlooks weaken in four sectors, including the electricity, gas and water sector with a decline of 12 percentage points, and the wholesale and retail trade sector, where employers report a decrease of six percentage points.

Croatia with a net employment outlook of 29 per cent topped the list of being most optimistic in terms of hiring intentions for the next three months, followed by Taiwan (26 per cent) and Japan (24 per cent) in second and third position, respectively. When compared with 1Q 2018, hiring prospects are five percentage points stronger in Gauteng, and improve by two percentage points in KwaZulu-Natal.

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.

Employers expect to increase staffing levels in all seven industry sectors during the upcoming quarter.

IN employers expect to hire at what ManpowerGroup describes as "a confident pace" in April, May and June, according to survey results released today.

The strong national result is unchanged when compared to the same period previous year, but declines by three percentage points quarter-on-quarter. When forecasts are compared with those reported in the first-quarter, hiring intentions improve in 17 countries and territories, decline in 17 and are unchanged in nine.
