Manpower Employment Outlook Survey Results

Just announced are the results of the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey for Quarter 4 2010.

Of the more than 18,000 U.S. employers surveyed, 15% anticipate an increase in staff levels in their Quarter 4 2010 hiring plans, while 11% expect a decrease in payrolls.  When seasonally adjusted, the Net Employment Outlook becomes +5%. Seventy one percent of employers expect no change in their hiring plans. The final 3% of employers indicate they are undecided about their hiring intentions.
