Winnipeg employers hiring

GOOD news for local job seekers -- more employers plan to hire extra workers this summer, according to a new employment-outlook survey by Manpower Canada.

The company said Tuesday a recent survey of 1,900 Canadian employers found 17 per cent of the Winnipeg respondents indicated they plan to hire for the upcoming quarter -- July to September -- and only two per cent said they anticipate cutbacks. The other 81 per cent said they plan to maintain current staffing levels.

"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Winnipeg's third-quarter net employment outlook of 11 per cent is a slight decrease of one percentage point when compared to the previous quarterly outlook," said Vincent Stycke, spokesman for Manpower's Winnipeg office.

It is also a seven percentage point increase from the outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a respectable hiring pace for the upcoming quarter. Manpower described the national hiring climate for this summer as "moderate."

With seasonal variations removed from the data, it said Canada's net employment outlook for the quarter is nine per cent. That's down slightly from the previous quarter, and is a three percentage point drop from the same quarter last year.

TORONTO -- The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (TSX:CM) announced Tuesday the appointment of Richard Nesbitt as chief operating officer.

Nesbitt, who is currently the bank's senior executive vice-president and group head of wholesale, international, technology and operations, will retain those responsibilities.

The appointment was part of several organizational changes that also saw Tom Woods named vice-chairman and Laura Dottori-Attanasio take the job of chief risk officer.
