and now. A Manpower survey found 13 per cent of employers expecting to take on new staff; no cutbaks are anticipated. “With seasonal variations removed from the data, Barrie’s second quarter Net Employment Outlook of 11 per cent is a seven percentage point increase when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook,” said Tara Benson of Manpower’s Barrie office. “It is also a decrease of three percentage points from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, indicating a respectable hiring pace for the upcoming months.”
