Welcome to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for Q2 of 2022.
Strong hiring optimism continues into the second quarter of 2022, according to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey of more than 41,000 employers across 40 countries and territories.
Despite continued economic uncertainty, 49% of U.S. employers polled plan to hire in Q2 while just 14% plan to let staff go, resulting in a seasonally adjusted, Net Employment Outlook of +35%.
While outlooks improve year-over-year in the U.S., hiring sentiment weakens compared with Q1 2022. Digital roles are once again most in-demand, with IT, Tech, Telecoms, Communications and Media reporting the highest outlook (+51) followed by Primary Production (+43) and Banking, Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (+42). One of the weakest hiring intentions (+27) for Q2 was in Education, Health, Social Work and Government. (Figures are seasonally adjusted.)
Organizations plan for year-over-year staffing climate gains for all American regions in the second quarter of 2022.
“This data paints a positive picture for the American labor market and we should feel confident in U.S. employers’ ability to navigate uncertainties and adapt for change.” Becky Frankiewicz , President, ManpowerGroup, North America
