According to the second quarter survey, although the hiring pace will slow, few staff reductions are expected. The wholesale and retail trade sectors in the country are the most upbeat about hiring, followed by services, finance, insurance, and the real estate sectors, the report said. "In the coming times, technology will change the job market dynamics and individuals need to adopt skill set to continue to remain employable", said A G Rao, Group MD at ManpowerGroup India. Public and social sector employers report modest hiring plans with an outlook of +7%, while some payroll gains are forecast for the mining and quarrying sector, where the outlook stands at +6%.

The strong national result is unchanged when compared to the same period previous year, but declines by three percentage points quarter-on-quarter.

Nationwide, employers in all 13 industry sectors expect to add staff in Q2 2018.

The hiring outlook is not as good as the national average where the net employment outlook is 14 per cent. 0 per cent expressed any expectations to reduce payrolls in the next three months.

The holding-pattern outlook comes as the N.C. Commerce Department reported a 4.2 percent unemployment rate in December for the Winston-Salem MSA.
