Hiring climate improving in Surrey: survey

Surrey employers can expect a favourable hiring climate for the second quarter of 2014 according to an employment outlook survey.

Data collected by Manpower Canada reveals that 10 per cent of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter (April to June) while seven per cent anticipate cutbacks.

Another 73 percent plan to maintain their current staffing levels, while another 10 per cent are unsure about hiring intentions.

“Surrey’s second quarter net employment outlook of 13 per cent is a slight decrease of two percentage points when compared to the previous quarterly outlook,” Jeff Polkinghorne of Manpower’s Vancouver office said.
