[1] The Net Employment Outlook is calculated by subtracting the percentage of employers anticipating a decrease in hiring activity from the percentage of employers anticipating an increase in employment.

The report suggests that with the current rapid advances in technology, more job openings are being made available by companies that are capable of balancing technology, human talent, and social connectivity.

Organizations are planning to add staff across all 13 industry sectors in Q2 2018, according to the survey.

Across the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region, workforce gains are planned in 25 of 26 countries.

Erica Melarangeli of Manpower's Stoney Creek office says the outlook for Hamilton shows an increase of 12 percentage points when compared with the outlook reported during the same time past year, indicating an optimistic hiring pace for the upcoming months. Employers in the Mining & Construction sector report a decline of four percentage points year-on-year, as have those in the Manufacturing sector. Hiring intentions improve in five of the 10 industry sectors when compared with the previous quarter. Employers report the strongest hiring intentions in Leisure & Hospitality (+28%) as the economy picks up.
