Indian Employers Report Strongest Hiring Plans to Date, While U.S. Employers in 10 of 13 Industry Sectors Are Set to Increase Hiring from Three Months Ago

MILWAUKEE, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released today, employer hiring plans for the second quarter are strongest in emerging markets, such as India, Brazil and Turkey, compared to their more developed counterparts in the global labor market. In fact, the Manpower data shows demand for employees in India is at its strongest level since the survey began there in 2005. In contrast, hiring plans from employers in countries such as Canada, the U.S., Norway and France, while generally positive, are more subdued and demonstrate the various speeds of recovery within the global labor market. Second quarter job prospects improve in 18 countries quarter-over-quarter and in 25 compared to 12 months ago. In the U.S., employers in 10 of 13 industry sectors anticipate adding more employees in the quarter ahead compared to three months ago.
