Demand for skilled talent continues to grow as U.S. employers report double-digit hiring intentions for the seventh consecutive year, according to the second-quarter Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, released by ManpowerGroup Inc.

Province-wide, Alberta can expect a nine pre cent increase in hiring.

According to the survey, hiring activity in Singapore is expected to remain modest for Q2 2019, with employers in Singapore reporting a seasonally adjusted Net Employment Outlook of +11%.

The survey is based on interviews with more than 11,500 employers located in the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, ManpowerGroup said. "The UK Warehousing Association recently reported that three quarters of UK warehouse owners say their space is full to capacity and storage costs have soared by up to 25 percent in the past three months - suggesting that many are more concerned about having somewhere to put their goods rather than the need to move them around".

"Ultimately the biggest piece of insight I can give is for job seekers to understand the skills gap, understand that there is work out there, but understanding what you're skill set versus what's skill set that's needed and bridging that gap", Borhot said.

The other four per cent are unsure of their hiring intentions. More worryingly, the negative Outlook in the Business and Financial services sector - which employs almost a fifth of all United Kingdom workers - suggests jobs are set to be lost in Britain's most important sector.

Statewide, the employment outlook is "upbeat", according to ManpowerGroup. Three sectors show a +23 percent shift, these being industry, transport & communication, and commerce.

"The best candidates will often have the pick of a number of different jobs or temporary assignments at any one time; in a battle to attract and hold on to top talent, employers must ensure their salaries and benefits packages are in line with or exceed the trends in the region", Mr Greaves added.

Employers in IN (+33%), ME (+33%), Alaska (+28%), Colorado (+27%), Kansas (+26%), North Carolina (+26%) and OR (+26%) report the strongest Outlooks nationwide.

In a quarter-over-quarter comparison, Large employers report an improvement of 6 percentage points, and Outlooks are 2 percentage points stronger for Small- and Micro-size firms. When compared with the second quarter of 2018, Outlooks improve in 13 countries and territories, but decline in 27 and are unchanged in four.
