CNA file

Erica Melarangeli of Manpower's Stoney Creek office says the outlook for Hamilton shows an increase of 12 percentage points when compared with the outlook reported during the same time past year, indicating an optimistic hiring pace for the upcoming months.

"The second quarter of 2018 is expected to see steady gains for Canadian job seekers", Yvonne Tennenbaum, regional director for Manpower Canada, said in a release.

Both state and national hiring outlook numbers are stronger than the current quarter, when a net of 15 percent of IN employers planned to hire and 19 percent of USA employers expected to add jobs.

The survey found 26 percent of IN respondents plan to increase staff; 3 percent plan to decrease; and 71 percent expect to maintain current workforce levels.

IN employers expect to hire at what ManpowerGroup describes as "a confident pace" in April, May and June, according to survey results released today. Meanwhile, the weakest Outlook is reported by Manufacturing sector employers, standing at +9%.

However, Rashford insists he is learning more on the training ground from his boss than on the pitch on matchday. He came in for a big game and did the business, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's back on the bench.

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 a year ago. Seven per cent anticipate making cutbacks. The strongest labour market is anticipated by Large employers with a Net Employment Outlook of +18%.

The Transportation and Utilities sector (+21 percent) shows a decline over the previous quarter, but is still 7 percent higher than the outlook for 2Q, 2017.

According to the report, USA employer hiring confidence is staying strong in Q2 2018 as one in five plan to grow their workforce in the three months ahead. When compared with 1Q 2018, hiring prospects are five percentage points stronger in Gauteng, and improve by two percentage points in KwaZulu-Natal. 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.

The manufacturing sector and the service sector was second, with a net hiring outlook of 28 percent, ManpowerGroup said, saying that most job openings in the manufacturing sector will be seen in central Taiwan, while the gaming industry in the service sector is expected to expand its workforce. 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.
