The numbers are in, and it looks like the third quarter will see more companies adding staff — particularly in one sector.
Here’s what two recent studies found:
According to a study of more than 18,000 employers by Manpower Inc., 18% of companies plan to increase their workforces in the third quarter. The study also found that of the four major regions in the country, the Northeast is expected to see the biggest increase in hiring.
Finance is expected to see a much greater bump in hiring than other departments. A recent study using the Robert Half Financial Hiring Index found that 84% of CFOs are “very” or “somewhat confident” that their company would grow within the next three months.
