Subdued hiring climate for Red Deer in second quarter of 2019

14 March 2019

Within these two sectors, the former saw a four percentage-point increase in hiring intentions while on the other hand, the latter saw a 4 percentage-point decline in hiring prospects.

The ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey is based on responses from 2,124 United Kingdom employers.

"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Calgary's second quarter net employment outlook of eight per cent is a three percentage point increase when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook", said Upright in a statement, adding the Q2 employment numbers for 2019 are a one per cent increase from the same time a year ago.

Richmondites looking for a new job may not be able to expect a significant number of openings coming up, but one employment agency says the area will have a "moderate hiring climate" over the next few months. Employers in the leisure and hospitality sector reported the strongest hiring intentions for the first quarter, with 35% planning to increase hiring and a seasonally adjusted net employment outlook of 25%.

The sector has now recorded its least optimistic year since the depths of the financial crisis in 2009, with an average Outlook of just +2 percent. More worryingly, the negative Outlook in the Business and Financial services sector - which employs almost a fifth of all United Kingdom workers - suggests jobs are set to be lost in Britain's most important sector.

In Victoria, the net employment outlook of 13 percent is a 10-point decrease from last quarter's.

At the same time, employers in the public administration & education sector also anticipate steady rise in headcount, with a net employment outlook of +16%.

However, hiring prospects improve in three sectors, most notably by 14 percentage points in the Agriculture, Hunting, Forestry & Fishing sector and by 5 percentage points in the Electricity, Gas & Water sector. Meanwhile, Micro- and Medium-size employers report cautious hiring plans with Outlooks of +1%.
