Employer Hiring Plans: More Temps, No Change in Permanent Full-Timers


The number of employers planning to hire full-time permanent workers by the end of the year is unchanged from a year ago though the number expecting to bring on temporary workers is up by half, says CareerBuilder’s mid-year hiring forecast.

The just released CareerBuilder forecast, based on a survey of 2,000 hiring managers and HR professionals conducted six weeks ago, found:

44 percent of employers plan to hire full-time, permanent employees, on par with last year;
25 percent plan to hire part-time employees, up from 21 percent last year;
31 percent plan to hire temporary or contract workers, up from 21 percent last year
