Steady Hiring Climate Anticipated For Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge area says Manpower

Waterloo Region employers expect a steady hiring climate for the second quarter of 2017, according to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey.

“Survey data reveals that 23 per cent of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter (April to June), while two per cent anticipate cutbacks,” stated Nikki Sharpley of Manpower’s Kitchener office. Another 72 per cent of employers plan to maintain their current staffing levels in the upcoming quarter, while the remaining three per cent are unsure of their hiring intentions.

“With seasonal variations removed from the data, Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge’s second quarter Net Employment Outlook of 18 per cent is a three percentage point decrease when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook,” said Sharpley. “It is also an increase of one percentage point from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a positive hiring pace for the upcoming months.”

“Nationally, the second quarter of 2017 is expected to see modest gains for Canadian job seekers,” said Darlene Minatel, Vice President, Manpower Canada Operations & Strategic Accounts. “Many companies, especially in the manufacturing sector, are taking a cautious approach until they see what effect political changes in the United States will have on the Canadian economy.”
