The number of new jobs is expected to rise in seven out of eight industrial sectors analysed by the survey.

In the previous ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey, forecasts improved for six industrial sectors.

The most optimistic jobs forecasts were given by employers in the construction sector, who expect a 1 percentage point increase in net employment in their companies.

The only sector with the negative jobs projection for Q1 2019 is the tourism and hospitality industry.
