Employers plan hiring in Q3
(06-11 19:05)

Hong Kong employers are planning to hire more staff in the third quarter of this year.
This is according to the human resources company, ManpowerGroup, which surveyed more than 800 employers, RTHK reports.
The firm's Regional Managing Director, Lancy Chui, said the construction and services sectors were most upbeat about hiring staff.
She said infrastructural projects are giving rise to job opportunities.
Chui also said hiring within the finance, real estate and insurance sectors is likely to remain steady in the third quarter. But downsizing might adversely affect fresh graduates with business-related degrees.
She said hiring in the manufacturing sector might weaken because factory orders are vulnerable to a deteriorating external business environment.
