Greek employers expect little change in hiring trends in the January-March 2016 period, a report by Manpower Group said on Tuesday.
From the 750 employers participating in the survey, an 11 pct expects an increase in the number of workers, an 11 pct expects a decline, a 71 pct expects there will be no change in the workforce, while a 7.0 pct said they did not know whether there would be any change in the next quarter.
Employment prospects rose by 11 percentage points to +4 pct, compared with the previous quarter, but down four percentage points compared with the same period last year. “The survey reveals improved intentions for hiring in the first quarter of 2016,” Dr Venetia Kousia, chairman and chief executive of Manpower Group said in a report.
The Financial, insurance, real estate, services and tourism sectors showed improved employment prospects for the first quarter of 2016, while employment prospects are expected to fall in the agricultural sector and to remain unchanged in the construction sector.
Employers in the wider Attica region expect a mild increase in their workforce in the next three months, while employers in Northern Greece expect a stable labor market. Large enterprise employers were more optimistic over employment prospects, while employers from very small enterprises see zero changes in their workforce.
