"Labor markets around the world are looking strong for Q2, with hiring outlooks back at pre-pandemic levels in most countries,” said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO.
Strongest hiring plans for employers in Brazil (+40%), India (+38%), Mexico (+38%), and Sweden (+38%);
weakest reported in Greece (-2%), Poland (+5%) and Japan (+6%).
Outlooks improve year-over-year in 36 countries
with the strongest improvements reported by employers in South Africa, Panama, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Employers in North America report the most optimistic regional outlook
of 38% followed by South and Central America (+35%), APAC (+28%) then EMEA (+22%).
Labor shortages drive worker demand across sectors:
Manufacturing (+31%), Wholesale & Retail Trade (+29%) and Primary Production (+27) report strong hiring intentions as employers continue to struggle to fill roles requiring workers to be on site.
The weakest (though improved) hiring intentions were reported in Restaurants and Hotels
(20%) as hospitality continues to recover following the outbreak of the Omnicron variant at the end of 2021.
