ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey – Q2 2017
The survey results for this quarter report that:
- UK employers still report optimistic hiring intentions for the April-June time frame with a seasonally adjusted Net Employment Outlook of +5% (but it’s a two point fall from the previous quarter),
- Most regions in the UK are optimistic about hiring, with the East and East Midlands particularly so at +9% and +8%, respectively,
- The construction sector has risen to +12% and manufacturing holds steady with a Net Employment Outlook of +6%. However, the transport sector remains low at +1% and utilities employers are taking more caution reporting a six point fall from last quarter.
