Welcome to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for Q1 of 2022.
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.
While outlooks improve year-over-year, hiring sentiment weakens compared with Q4 2021 in the U.S. Digital roles are most in demand: IT, Technology, Telecoms, Communications and Media reported the strongest outlook (+60%), followed by Banking, Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (+50%) and Construction (+41%). The weakest hiring intentions were found in Not-for-profit (+29%) and Other Industries (+27%).
Employers know flexibility is the key to attracting workers in a tight labor market: Organizations expect 51% of Finance and Accounting and 50% of the Administrative/Office support workforce to work a hybrid mix of onsite workplace and remote.
Not all roles can 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 (21%).
“This is the most optimistic Q1 report we have seen since the survey began six decades ago. Employers continue to bring workers back into the labor market and the reconciliation between what workers want and what employers need continues.” Becky Frankiewicz , President, ManpowerGroup, North America
