IT firms expect to increase hiring next quarter, Manpower says

While organizations across all US industries are expected to boost hiring in the third quarter, employers in the IT market have the most agressive hiring plans, according to global staffing firm ManpowerGroup.

Across all industry verticals in the US, 48% of employers plan to hire in Q3, while just 13% expect staffing decreases, according to the survey. For US tech firms, 55% plan to add to their current headcount, up 10% from the previous quarterly outlook. Even so, Q3 hiring projections are expected to be about 5% less than for the same period in 2022.

After IT, the most robust hiring plans are expected in financials and real estate, energy and utilities, and industrials and materials, according to ManpowerGroup’s global survey of nearly 39,000 people with roles that include hiring and HR management. Projections  about US hiring plans are based on a subset of 6,000 US-based employers who took part in the larger survey. Responses were gathered April 3-28.
