ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey Q2 in 2023

Blog Q2 Hiringoutlook 900x500

​A message from Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO:

“Despite economic pressures, hiring Outlooks remain resilient and employers across every industry continue to look for in-demand roles. At the same time, tight labor markets mean many face challenges finding people who have the soft and technical skills they need. Investment in upskilling, reskilling, and a focus on preparing people for tomorrow’s jobs has never been more important and should be at the top of every business leader's agenda.”

Key Findings

  • Employers in all 41 countries anticipate a positive hiring Outlook in Q2, with 22 of 41 countries reporting higher intentions compared to last quarter.

  • The most optimistic Outlooks are reported by employers in IT, Communication Services, and Finance/Real Estate

  • Global talent shortages are at an all-time high: 77% of employers report difficulty in filling roles, with the most difficult roles to fill in IT & Data, Engineering, and Sales & Marketing.

ManpowerGroup interviewed nearly 39,000 employers in 41 countries on hiring intentions for the second quarter of 2023.
