Brexit is looming for British employers. A poll led by the employment agency, ManpowerGroup, has found that hiring optimism is at its lowest level since 2012 among British employers. The poll, carried out among 2,100 employers across nine different industry sectors, found that only 4% of firms in the UK are planning to increase staffing levels instead of making cuts. The utility industries are among the most optimistic sectors. The survey also found that employers in England are more optimistic than in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. to loom se profiler, menacer / poll sondage / hiring (ici, concernant l’) embauche, (le) recrutement / to carry out effectuer, réaliser, mener / firm entreprise / staffing level niveau des effectifs / survey sondage, enquête / Wales Pays de Galles.
