Solid job optimism among Norwegian businesses

12. MARCH 2019

97% of Norwegian employers plan to keep or increase the number of employees up to the summer.That is higher than at the same time last year reported ManpowerGroup.

‘’With so many optimistic businesses, it is difficult to get the right heads.Therefore, many employers are focusing on upgrading the knowledge of existing employees’’ said CEO, Maalfrid Brath,of ManpowerGroup Norway.

She referred to ManpowerGroup’s labour market survey for the second quarter of 2019,where it appears that more Norwegian employers are planning to staff up rather than to down before the summer.

8% said they will hire more people before the summer. 89% will retain the workforce as it is,while only 2% will reduce staffing. 756 Norwegian companies responded to the survey.
