Subdued hiring climate for Red Deer in second quarter of 2019

Hiring forecast 'cautiously optimistic', but most Calgary businesses don't plan to expand

Shea said South Florida's employment environment outpaces some other major cities, pointing to Boston and NY where only 8 percent expect to increase hiring, according to the survey.

Province-wide, Alberta can expect a nine pre cent increase in hiring. Hiring prospects in the Midwest (+19%) are a close second with employers in the Northeast (+18%) not far behind.

"With seasonal variations removed from the data, Calgary's second quarter net employment outlook of eight per cent is a three percentage point increase when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook", said Upright in a statement, adding the Q2 employment numbers for 2019 are a one per cent increase from the same time a year ago.

Linda Teo, Country Manager of ManpowerGroup Singapore, comments on the upbeat hiring outlook for the services sector specifically: "Optimistic about business prospects, companies specialising in digitisation software and other digital services are hiring more actively than ever to secure talent specialising in software development and e-commerce".
