Employers in the Emerging Markets of India and Brazil Continue to Report the Strongest Hiring Intentions Globally, with German Employers Reporting the Strongest Hiring Plans in Four Years

MILWAUKEE, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to ManpowerGroup's (NYSE: MAN) third quarter Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released today, year-over-year hiring outlooks improve modestly across major countries with German employers reporting their most optimistic hiring expectations since the downturn. Although overall hiring plans for countries such as Italy and the U.K. remain subdued, results for Canada and France are above the historical average and those in Japan and the U.S., while below pre-recession levels, are cautiously optimistic. U.S. employers across all 13 industry sectors surveyed expect hiring activity to be relatively stable or improve from three months ago. Meanwhile, employers in the emerging market countries of India and Brazil continue to report the strongest hiring plans globally, fueled in part by strong demand in the countries' Finance / Insurance / Real Estate sectors.
