In the 60th anniversary edition of the ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey of more than 39,000 employers, all countries and territories report a positive outlook for the first time since before the pandemic. The report covers:
Q1 2022 Employment Outlook
Vaccine Expectations For On-site Return
The Great Shift To Hybrid Working
While outlooks improve year-over-year, hiring sentiment weakens compared with Q4 2021 in Taiwan, the U.S., Japan and France.
Digital roles most in demand: IT, Technology, Telecoms, Communications and Media reported the strongest outlook (+50%), followed by Banking, Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (+43%) and Restaurants and Hotels (+40%). The weakest hiring intentions were found in Non-for-profit (+26%) and Primary Production (+29%).
Employers know flexibility is the key to attracting workers in a tight labor market: Organizations expect 51% (of finance) and 29% (of manufacturing and production) workforce to work a hybrid mix of onsite workplace and remote. This is a substantial change since Q2 2021, when only 22% of organizations predicted a shift to a hybrid model.
Not all roles will be hybrid: The Manufacturing and Production industries are most likely to be in the workplace all of the time (55%) whereas roles in IT and telecoms are more likely to be full-time remote (17%).
