(Cornwall, ON, June 8, 2021) – According to the latest ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey, Cornwall area employers expect a quiet hiring climate for the third quarter of 2021.
“Survey data reveals that 8% of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter while 4% anticipate cutbacks,” stated Veronica Hariski of Manpower’s Ottawa office. “Another 80% of employers plan to maintain their current staffing levels in the upcoming quarter, while the remaining 8% are unsure of their hiring intentions.”
“With seasonal variations removed from the data, Cornwall’s third quarter Net Employment Outlook of +4% is the same as the previous quarterly Outlook,” said Hariski. “This indicates a reserved hiring pace for the upcoming months.”
“Widespread vaccination and settling of the pandemic may well be contributing to an increase in employers planning to return to workplace-based working for the third quarter of 2021,” said Darlene Minatel, Country Manager of ManpowerGroup Canada. “With all ten industry sectors expecting to hire in the upcoming quarter, and hiring intentions steady across all four regions, there will continue to be opportunities for job seekers.”
“Looking back to the third quarter of 2020 — the weakest quarter for employment Outlook since the survey began in 1978, the Employment Outlook has increased significantly in just one year. A national Outlook of +8% for Q3 2021 puts us exactly on par with pre-pandemic Outlooks.”
