Inland hiring should be ‘healthy’ in second quarter
The Press Enterprise: Inland hiring should be ‘healthy’ in second quarter
The market for job hunters in Inland Southern California is expected to continue improving as spring turns into summer, a study by one of the country’s largest personnel agencies found.
The report from Manpower released Tuesday, March 11 found that the demand for workers could slacken in the second quarter, but employers who are hiring new workers are expected to outnumber those considering layoffs by a margin of close to three-to-one.
Manpower reported that 19 percent of the employers surveyed in Riverside and San Bernardino counties said they plan to add workers during the second quarter and 7 percent anticipate layoffs. More than two-thirds say they will keep their employment levels constant. The plus-12 hiring-to-layoffs ratio is slightly lower than plus-15 forecast for the first quarter but better than that of 12 months ago.
