Fifty-eight percent of Canadian hiring managers said they plan to add new employees in the second half of the year, according to a survey by CareerBuilder.
Information technology ranked as the top area for recruitment with 30% of hiring managers saying they are adding jobs in that area. It was followed by customer service with 26% of managers hiring in this area.
"While companies plan to hire more workers in the second half of the year, they report they will do so gradually," said Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. "In addition, they will continue to focus on revenue generating positions and maintaining their current staff levels in an effort to facilitate growth and sustain their businesses through the rest of 2010."
The survey included interviews with 239 Canadian hiring managers conducted between May 22 and June 3.
