Elsewhere, employers forecast a steady increase in staffing levels with Outlooks of +16% and +14% for the East and the West, respectively.

The Manpower Group Press release states that " Of Over 59,000 employers surveyed across 44 countries and territories, confidence levels have strengthened year-on-year in 25 countries, weakened in 13, and remained the same in five". "While Canada experienced a net loss of jobs in January, prospects for the upcoming quarter remain strong, led by exceptionally strong growth in Quebec where employers are hiring across multiple sectors".

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 ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey is conducted quarterly to measure employers' intentions to increase or decrease the number of employees in their workforce during the next quarter. Employers in the Mining & Construction sector report a decline of four percentage points year-on-year, as have those in the Manufacturing sector.

Overall, the report finds that the favourable hiring climate observed in Q1 2018 expected to continue in Q2, with workforce gains anticipated in all seven industry sectors studied.

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

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. Among the countries and territories featuring seasonally adjusted data, confidence is strongest in Taiwan, Japan, Hungary and the United States, while the weakest hiring prospects are reported in Italy, the Czech Republic and Switzerland.
