ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey – Q3 2018
The ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey for the third quarter 2018 was conducted by interviewing a representative sample of 2,107 employers in the UK.
All survey participants were asked, “How do you anticipate total employment at your location to change in the three months to the end of September 2018 as compared to the current quarter?”
The survey results for this quarter report that:
- Negative business & financial services data suggests firms will cut jobs
- 2018 on track to be most downbeat year for hiring prospects since 2012
- UK manufacturing optimism surges – buoyed by weak pound and home-grown investment.
