Hir­ings went up by record fig­ure in June

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Salaried em­ploy­ment in­creased by 33,608 jobs in June, help­ing the fig­ures for the first half of the year to post a sur­plus, ac­cord­ing to the La­bor Min­istry’s Er­gani data­base.

Last month hir­ings de­clared to the min­istry amounted to 239,573, while de­par­tures came to 205,965, in­clud­ing 79,260 vol­un­tary de­par­tures. The sit­u­a­tion was much bet­ter this year com­pared to the same month last year. The sur­plus recorded in 2015 amounted to just 8,590 jobs, so this year the im­prove­ment amounted to 25,018 more new jobs.

June 2016 was the fifth con­sec­u­tive month with a sur­plus in the job flow in the pri­vate sec­tor, while the sur­plus of 33,608 jobs con­sti­tutes the best June record since 2001, ac­cord­ing to Er­gani fig­ures.

In the first six months of this year, hir­ings amounted to 1,063,590 and de­par­tures reached 828,926, of which 376,239 were vol­un­tary. This has taken the sur­plus of the year’s first half to 234,664, which is also the best Jan­uary-June record seen since 2001.

No­tably, be­sides the on­line record­ings of hir­ings and de­par­tures of salaried em­ploy­ees on Er­gani, there is also a small num­ber of com­pa­nies that have reg­is­tered their hir­ings and de­par­tures in hand­writ­ing at the Man­power Or­ga­ni­za­tion (OAED), ei­ther due to over­due sub­mis­sions or to their in­abil­ity to do so on­line.
