Job seekers will benefit from a modest hiring pace from April to June 2017, as hiring intentions among Singapore employers continue to be conservative. Once the data is adjusted to allow for seasonal variation, Singapore’s Net Employment Outlook stands at a +8%, a slight dip from the +9% of the previous quarter. Of the 700 employers surveyed, 13% expect to increase staffing levels while 5% anticipate a decrease, and 81% foresee no change.
