The arrival of spring is bringing good news for Canadian job seekers.
A steady hiring climate is anticipated over the next several months in Windsor.
The latest Manpower Group employment survey shows 27 percent of employers plan to hire in the next three months and only 3 per cent are anticipating cutbacks.
"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Windsor's third quarter Net Employment Outlook of +12% is a five percentage point increase when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook," said Heather Irvine of Manpower. "It is also a three percentage point increase from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a modest hiring pace for the upcoming months."
Overall, the survey of over 1,900 employers across Canada reveals that 19 per cent of employers plan to increase their staffing levels in the third quarter of 2019, while 3 per cent anticipate cutbacks.
Manpower says Canadian employers continue to struggle with talent shortages and are increasingly interested in hiring teachable candidates.
