Companies looking to hire in the next few months



New Orleans area employers are looking to add jobs in the coming months.

The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey finds that from April to June, 18% of the companies interviewed in the region plan to hire more employees, while 3% expect to reduce staff. Another 74% said they expect to maintain their current workforce levels.

That all means that a net of 15% of companies expect to grow in the spring.

"Hiring activity is expected to increase during the second quarter of 2014 compared to Quarter 1 when the Net Employment Outlook was 11%," Manpower spokesman Clint Landry said in a news release. "Employers expect significantly improved employment prospects compared with one year ago when the Net Employment Outlook was 5%."

Statewide, the picture is similar.

"Employers in Louisiana expect to hire at a promising pace during the second quarter of 2014," according to Manpower spokesman Michael Doyle.

From April to June, 16% of the companies interviewed in the state said they plan to hire more employees, while 4% expect to reduce their payrolls. That's a net of 12% of Louisiana employers looking to hire.
