  • Print

Things are looking up for local job seekers, according to the latest quarterly survey by the Manpower Group.

The workforce solutions firm said today the results of its latest Employment Outlook Survey point to a solid hiring climate in Winnipeg in the first quarter of 2014.

"Survey data reveals that 20 per cent of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter (January to March), while two per cent anticipate cutbacks," said Carman Gosselin, of Manpower’s Winnipeg office.

The other 78 per cent of employers said they plan to maintain their current staffing levels.

"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Winnipeg’s first quarter Net Employment Outlook of 20 per cent is an increase of 11 percentage points when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook," Gosselin said. "It is also an 11 percentage point increase from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a healthy hiring pace for the upcoming months."
