ManpowerGroup survey: recruitment conditions to remain stable**** (Sept.10, 2013, /staffingindustry.com/) Global hiring conditions are expected to remain stable for the remainder of 2013, but ManpowerGroup’s (NYSE: MAN) fourth-quarter Manpower Employment Outlook survey, released today, reveals few signs that global hiring momentum will improve by any notable degree. This quarter’s research of over 65,000 hiring managers across 42 countries and territories reveals: employers in 29 of the 42 countries and territories surveyed plan to increase hiring by varying degrees during the fourth quarter, compared with 32 during the July-September timeframe. U.S. Outlook is the strongest in over five years. Emerging Markets lead the way: fourth-quarter hiring plans in India are the most optimistic across the globe, and are expected to rebound decisively following four consecutive quarters of relatively lacklustre forecasts. After India, hiring prospects are strongest in Taiwan, Panama, Singapore and Brazil. Weakest Hiring Expectations in European Countries: the softest opportunities for job seekers are expected in Italy, Spain, Finland, Ireland, and Hungary.

Hays survey: strong demand for finance talent, despite the economic slowdown** (Sept. 16, 2013,/HRoot/) Despite the economic slowdown, the demand for finance talent still exceeds supply in China, according to the world’s leading recruiting experts Hays(LON:HAS). Looking at senior management or senior technical candidates, such as CFOs, controllers, treasurers, FP&A, finance managers and cost managers, Hays notes there is still a pretty acute skills shortage. In addition, most employers prefer Chinese local candidates, but due to the small talent pool they will consider expats from Hong Kong and Singapore. “Globally most multinationals are under increasing cost pressure, so the financial management of their businesses in China is becoming a real global priority. As for domestic companies that have gone through their rapid setup and establishment phase and are now moving into consolidating their business and then expanding, they need to introduce systems and structures. You do start to see a stronger financial team and a stronger financial management structure.” says Simon Lance, Regional Director of Hays in China.
