Ac­tive hir­ing cli­mate ex­pected for Corn­wall

Seaway News - - NEWS -

Corn­wall area em­ploy­ers ex­pect an ac­tive hir­ing cli­mate for the third quar­ter of 2010, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Man­power Em­ploy­ment Out­look Sur­vey.

Sur­vey data re­veals that 26 per cent of em­ploy­ers plan to hire for the up­com­ing quar­ter (July to Septem­ber), while zero per cent an­tic­i­pate cut­backs, stated Ken­dra Held of Man­power’s Corn­wall of­fice. An­other 74 per cent of em­ploy­ers in­tend to main­tain their cur­rent staffing lev­els and zero per cent are un­sure of their hir­ing in­ten­tions for the third quar­ter of 2010.

“Corn­wall’s third quar­ter Net Em­ploy­ment Out­look of 26 per cent is an in­crease from the same time last year when em­ploy­ers re­ported a Net Em­ploy­ment Out­look of seven per cent,” said Held. “It is also a 16 per­cent­age point in­crease from the pre­vi­ous quar­ter in­di­cat­ing a solid hir­ing cli­mate for the up­com­ing quar­ter.”

“This quar­ter’s na­tional Net Em­ploy­ment Out­look in­di­cates that the fair hir­ing cli­mate re­ported in the pre­vi­ous quar­ter will strengthen in the third quar­ter of 2010,” says Lori Rogers, VP of Staffing Ser­vices for Man­power Canada. “Em­ploy­ers are telling us that they plan to con­tinue to in­crease their pay­rolls in the up­com­ing three-month pe­riod.”

Of the 10 sur­veyed in­dus­try sec­tors, em­ploy­ers in the Min­ing and Con­struc­tion in­dus­try sec­tors re­port the most favourable re­sults for the third quar­ter of 2010, with pro­jected Net Em­ploy­ment Out­looks of 19 per cent and 15 per cent re­spec­tively, once sea­sonal vari­a­tions are re­moved from the data. This is fol­lowed by the Whole­sale and Re­tail Trade sec­tor, where em­ploy­ers an­tic­i­pate a hope­ful hir­ing cli­mate, re­port­ing a sea­son­ally ad­justed Net Em­ploy­ment Out­look of 13 per cent.
