Kathimerini English - - Focus -

There are signs that sug­gest the sec­ond quar­ter of 2017 will be Greece’s strong­est in terms of hir­ings in the last cou­ple of years, ac­cord­ing to a quar­terly sur­vey by Man­power Group.

Greece’s sea­son­ally ad­justed em­ploy­ment out­look points to a rise of 9 per­cent. In­tent to hire is the strong­est since 2015, ac­cord­ing to the em­ploy­ers sur­veyed, up two per­cent­age points from the first quar­ter of 2017 and up four per­cent­age points from the sec­ond quar­ter of 2016.

All nine main sec­tors of eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity are ex­pected to ob­serve an in­crease in em­ploy­ment, Man­power Group has found. The best prospects, with an an­tic­i­pated in­crease of 11 per­cent, are seen for the Fi­nance, In­sur­ance, Prop­erty & Cor­po­rate Ser­vices sec­tor and the In­dus­try/Pro­duc­tion sec­tor. Growth of 9 per­cent is ex­pected in the sec­tors of Agri­cul­ture and Trans­port & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, while the pro­jec­tion for the State & So­cial Ser­vices sec­tor is for 8 per­cent em­ploy­ment growth.

The weak­est prospects are seen in the sec­tor of Elec­tric­ity, Nat­u­ral Gas & Water, where the sur­vey fore­cast an ex­pan­sion of 1 per­cent.
