The mar­ket is in­creas­ingly show­ing signs of im­prove­ment on the em­ploy­ment front, as the lat­est sur­vey of em­ploy­ers by Man­power found that more (16 per­cent) ex­pect to in­crease their staff in the third quar­ter of the year than those ex­pect­ing to lay off em­ploy­ees (13 per­cent). The ma­jor­ity (68 per­cent) ex­pect no change.

Greek em­ploy­ers fur­ther es­ti­mate that new hir­ings will be made in five out of nine eco­nomic sec­tors, as be­sides tourism they fore­see an in­crease in em­ploy­ment in the fi­nan­cial and in­sur­ance sec­tor, in trans­port and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, in agri­cul­ture and in the pub­lic sec­tor and so­cial ser­vices. Hir­ing prospects are in­creas­ing in seven more sec­tors than in the pre­vi­ous quar­ter of the year and in eight more than in the third quar­ter of 2012.

Man­power Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Vene­tia Kou­sia said that “we now have cer­tain signs that al­low us to be some­what op­ti­mistic about the fu­ture of the la­bor mar­ket in Greece.”
