  • [01] Job prospects flat in Q4

  • [01] Job prospects flat in Q4

    The employment outlook in Greece for the fourth quarter of 2009 is flat, a survey by the firm Manpower stated on Tuesday, with the percentage of employers intending to hire new staff during the last quarter equal to the percentage of those expecting to cut their workforce.

    Manpower, in its quarterly survey on employment prospects in the country, said the hiring rate was +16 pct in the public and social services sectors.

    The survey, based on a sample of 769 employers, showed that 76 pct of employers do not expect changes in the number of employed people, with the remaining 24 pct are split between those expecting new hirings and those expecting lay-offs. The percentage of employers saying they were uncertain over changes in their workforce was zero, for the first since the survey has been published in Greece.

    Manpower said hiring prospects were favourable in the public sector and social services, followed by a cautiously optimistic climate in financial services, insurance, real estate and construction sectors.

    The farm sector recorded the lowest rate for hiring prospects in the fourth quarter.

    Employers in the Attica prefecture (the greater Athens area) and northern Greece regions were most pessimistic over employment prospects.
