The Employment Outlook in Ireland

In today's Business World, it is reported that "Irish employers remain gloomy about the prospects for hiring staff in early 2010 with 17pc expecting to cut payroll numbers in the first three months of the New Year... Employers also report their sixth consecutive quarter of negative hiring activity." This is according to a survey from Manpower.

The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey examines anticipated hiring activities across 35 countries and territories. The current survey in this country measures the intentions of 620 Irish employers to increase or decrease their workforce over the next three months. The report is available here.

The only sector where employers do not report avnegative Outlook is the Pharmaceutical sector, where
flat hiring activity is forecast with an Outlook of 0%.

All employers participating in the survey worldwide are asked the same question (only one), “How do you anticipate total employment at your location to change in the three months to the end of December 2009 as compared to the current quarter?”
