Twenty per cent of Greater Victoria employers, in all sectors, plan to hire in the third quarter of 2011, according to a survey.
Manpower Group asked a range of employers whether they planned to add or subtract employees in the third quarter, or keep the status quo.
Three per cent of employers surveyed planned cutbacks, equalling a net employment outlook of 17 per cent. Manpower Canada in a release called the number “respectable.”
The outlook for Q2 was 30 per cent, while Q3 of 2010 had an outlook of 13 per cent.
