A DIP in South Australia’s em­ploy­ment ex­pec­ta­tions for the com­ing three months re­flects un­cer­tainty about the state of the econ­omy, with most em­ploy­ers plan­ning to keep their head count steady as they watch for emerg­ing eco­nomic trends.

Hud­son’s lat­est Em­ploy­ment Ex­pec­ta­tions re­port, which sur­veyed 4481 Aus­tralian em­ploy­ers on hir­ing ex­pec­ta­tions for the April to June pe­riod, showed sen­ti­ment in South Australia dipped 2.9 per cent to 17.6 per cent from the pre­vi­ous quar­ter.

With 89.3 per cent of com­pa­nies still ex­pect­ing to ei­ther main­tain their work­force or hire new staff, ex­pec­ta­tions of jobs cuts con­trib­uted only a small part to the de­cline.
