Manpower Employment Outlook Survey: Quarter One 2009

Hi Everyone, We've mentioned some Manpower Employment data on this blog before. Here is another interesting instalment, especially for expats or wanna-be expats:

"The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey of global hiring trends released [yesterday]... shows that the most favorable first-quarter hiring plans globally are reported by employers in Peru, India, Costa Rica, Canada, Romania, Colombia, South Africa, Australia, Poland, the United States and China.

Conversely, employers in Singapore, Spain, Ireland and Italy are reporting the weakest hiring expectations for the quarter ahead.
Read more in the press release.

The quarterly report from Manpower Inc. (NYSE:MAN) is the most extensive, forward-looking employment survey in the world, gathering data from over 71,000 employers across the globe each quarter. To view full survey results for each of the 33 countries and territories included in the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, plus regional and global comparisons, visit the Manpower Inc. site.

Best wishes for your day/evening!

I was VERY surprised to see the USA on the list of countries for first quarter hiring!! Especially in light of high unemployment numbers and overall gloomy economy.
I would like to know where they got the stats..?
