‘Hopeful pace’ of hiring expected in Missouri to open 2019, report says

The first quarter of 2019 looks promising for job seekers in Missouri, according to a new report.

A survey from ManPowerGroup, a global staffing firm, found that 17 percent of businesses in the state will be looking for new employees to open the new year.

That’s off 1 point from the first quarter of this year, when the survey showed 18 percent of employers planned to hire, but ManPowerGroup still characterizes it as a “hopeful pace” of hiring.

Another 75 percent of businesses in Missouri responded that they plan to maintain current staffing levels over the first quarter, and 6 percent said they plan to reduce payroll.

More than 12,500 businesses nationwide were interviewed for the survey.
