Survey Finds Restraint in Hiring Plans for the Second Quarter

Posted on March 14, 2007 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

MILWAUKEE — U.S. employers plan to tone down hiring activity during the second quarter of 2007, according to the seasonally adjusted results of the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, conducted quarterly by Manpower Inc. “A look at the last three quarters of survey data suggests that employers are shifting into neutral when it comes to hiring,” said Jeffrey Joerres, Chairman & CEO of Manpower Inc. “Companies expect to coast through the next three months without much growth in the way of staff. It is a subtle change that may not yet be perceived in the job market, however it is a break from the three plus years of nearly unchanged hiring plans.”

Of the 14,000 U.S. employers surveyed, 28% expect to increase payrolls during the second quarter of 2007, while 7% expect to trim staff levels. Fifty-nine percent expect no change in the hiring pace, and 6% are undecided about their hiring plans. The seasonally adjusted survey results show that employers are more likely to maintain or reduce staffing activity rather than ramp-up hiring.
