Inland job growth should be strong in second quarter

Hiring in the Inland Empire should improve as the year progresses, a major personnel agency said this week.

Employers who want to hire new workers are expected to outnumber those who are considering letting people go by 3 to 1 during the second quarter, according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released this week.

Nineteen percent of the companies interviewed in Riverside and San Bernardino counties said they plan to hire more people during the quarter, while seven percent sad they expect to reduce their staff and 70 percent said they expect to remain the same.

Construction, retail, professional and business services, government and manufacturing of durable goods are among the sectors expected to perform the best in the two-county region between April and June, according to the report.

One year ago, net employment was expected to increase nine percent.

Manpower surveys more than 100 markets and interviews about 18,000 people nationwide.
