Employers More Confident About Hiring

Hiring optimism among U.S. employers has gained momentum as positive outlooks were reported broadly across all industries and geographies, according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for Q2 2012. U.S. employers have conveyed a positive outlook for 10 straight quarters, according to the survey.

“We’re seeing improvement in the labor market, but job creation is not occurring fast enough,” said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup President of the Americas.  “Add to this the talent mismatch we’re seeing in the U.S. We just don’t have enough of the right people, with the right skills for open positions. To tackle the mismatch head on, ManpowerGroup reinforces the need for educators and employers to collaborate so that talent is work-ready, not only graduate-ready.”
