In the next quarter, 20 percent of domestic employers anticipate expansion, while 26 percent plan to reduce their current workforce. The largest reductions are expected in the most developed regions: Budapest and Western Transdanubia, according to ManpowerGroup’s Labor Market Forecast published today.

ManpowerGroup conducted its quarterly survey among a total of more than 40,000 employers in 41 countries around the world, in which a representative sample of more than 500 employers in Hungary were asked about their fourth quarter hiring intentions.
