Bright outlook for Florida hiring, ManpowerGroup says

Bright outlook for Florida hiring, ManpowerGroup says

China reported the most downbeat hiring prospects in the region, with the net hiring outlook at 8 percent in the second quarter, ManpowerGroup said.

The best bets for finding a job this spring are in the public administration sector, according to Manpower.

Linda Teo, country manager of ManpowerGroup Singapore, commented: "With the Singapore government announcing their increased support for companies to adopt digital technology and automation in the Budget 2018 speech, we expect more job opportunities with digital functions to be created over the next few quarters".

The strongest regional labour market in the upcoming quarter is forecast by Taiwanese employers, followed by Japan.

Fitbit Ace is the company's first fitness band for kids
The goal for Fitbit Ace , the company says, is to encourage kids to build habits around being physically active from an early age. That's because they're created to help women track menstrual cycles, record symptoms from those, and compare them across cycles.

The local number outpaces both the first-quarter outlook and last year's second-quarter figures. Employers in the Mining & Construction sector report a decline of four percentage points year-on-year, as have those in the Manufacturing sector. The hiring prospects have improved by three percentage points compared to Q2 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. Elsewhere, a steady increase in staffing levels is expected by restaurants and hotels sector employers, with an outlook of +12%, and by employers in two sectors with Outlooks of +11% - the manufacturing sector and the transport, storage and communication sector. The strongest outlooks are reported in Leisure & Hospitality (+28%), Professional & Business Services (+23%), Wholesale & Retail Trade (+23%), and Durable Goods Manufacturing (+19%). "As businesses in the country look to make smart decisions around their financial investments, take advantage of the economic improvements and invest wisely around environmental factors like the drought, the finance, insurance, real estate and business services sector is gaining momentum", says Van den Barselaar. A considerable decline of 14 percentage points is reported in the North, while Outlooks are 5 and 3 percentage points weaker in the South and the West, respectively.

The advisory firm said large enterprises with a workforce of 250 employees or more have a higher hiring outlook than their medium and small-sized counterparts, with the net employment outlook at 29 percent. Hiring plans improve in 13 countries quarter-over-quarter, weaken in eight and are unchanged in four.

Globally, among the countries and territories featuring seasonally adjusted data, confidence is strongest in Taiwan, Japan, Hungary and the USA, while the weakest hiring prospects are reported in Italy, the Czech Republic and Switzerland, the survey said.
