Employment outlook mixed for rest of year

THE employment outlook for the rest of 2014 appears hazy, with two human resource firms offering opposing views on hiring prospects.

PrimeStaff Management Services is forecasting hiring intentions for the third quarter to be “slightly pessimistic”, and may result in some contraction.

It does not expect a lot of new jobs to be created in any particular sector, nor is it anticipating any sector to lay off workers en masse.

Hudson’s more upbeat employment trends report, however, expects more employers to increase headcount for the rest of the year, reversing the downward trend of the recent quarters and reflecting a growing sense of confidence among businesses.
