Manpower Employment Outlook Survey Reveals Increase in U.S. Employers’ Hiring Plans for the Third Quarter

ManpowerGroup News Release (06/12/12)

Hiring confidence among U.S. employers continues to inch up as all states, regions, and industries surveyed report a positive Net Employment Outlook, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released today by ManpowerGroup. The seasonally adjusted survey results show the Net Employment Outlook for the third quarter of 2012 is +11%, slightly up from +10% during the second quarter of 2012, and +8% during the same period last year.

“In our on-demand world, seeing long-term changes can be difficult, but it is important to keep in mind that employer confidence has been on an upward trajectory for three years,” says Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup president of the Americas. “While slow and sometimes frustrating, job growth has proven to be sustainable, and the data show a solid foundation is in place for continued progress.”
