A large majority of employers globally, 92%, plan to hire in the next three months, according to Randstad RiseSmart’s second-quarter “Career Mobility Outlook” report released Thursday. That compares to 87% who said they planned to hire in the first-quarter report.

The most bullish on hiring were employers in the manufacturing sector, with nearly one in five planning to hire more than 10% of their total workforce in the coming months.

“The progress we’ve seen in our nation’s economic recovery has led to an improvement in overall economic sentiment among both employers and employees, but individuals continue to operate with cautious optimism,” Randstad RiseSmart CEO Dan Davenport said.

Randstad RiseSmart’s report noted that 38% of employees are likely to move to a new role externally in the coming months, which compares to just 17% in the first-quarter report. In addition, 42% of employees indicated they are likely to change roles within their company — a 19 percentage point increase from the first quarter.

Companies are also increasingly prioritizing career development initiatives and employee retention strategies with 76% of employers currently offering skilling and career development opportunities.

Randstad RiseSmart’s global report includes 144 responses from HR managers and above and responses from 155 employees.
