ManpowerGroup's annual Talent Shortage Survey, reveals that 32 percent of U.S. employers report difficulties filling job vacancies due to talent shortages. This marks a decrease of 8 percent, falling from 40 percent in 2014. Globally, the percentage of employers experiencing difficulties continued to rise, increasing from 36 percent in 2014 to 38 percent in 2015.
Global hiring conditions are expected to remain stable or improve slightly at the start of the new year, as many employers appear to remain resilient in the face of ongoing economic uncertainty and other disruptions. This is according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, which canvassed more than 65,000 employers from 42 countries and territories.
Global economic challenges and uncertainty will continue to contribute to subdued hiring during the second quarter of 2013, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released by ManpowerGroup. The research suggests that employers are seeking signs of a robust global economy before labor markets are likely to achieve sustainable traction.
Job seekers should see varying degrees of positive hiring activity across 31 of 42 countries and territories, with employers in 22 labor markets reporting improved or relatively stable hiring intentions compared to the third quarter. However, according to ManpowerGroup's fourth-quarter 2012 Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, the pace of hiring is expected to weaken in 26 markets compared to one year ago.
