Hiring Demand Continues Through Challenging Conditions

U.S. hiring decision-makers are more positive about the future of the workforce, with the most common feelings attributed to hiring in 2022 being positive (85%) – including being hopeful (51%), and optimistic (49%).

​According to hiring decision-makers, in the second half of 2022:

  • 61% plan to increase the number of employees at their company
  • 34% expect no change to the number of employees
  • 3% anticipate a decrease in employee count

Unfortunately, there continue to be new issues companies face – most recently, a once-in-a-generation rise in inflation. This increase in the cost to businesses has caused companies to make difficult decisions, including:

  • Raise prices (40%)
  • Absorb additional costs (39%)
  • Adopt new technology to automate tasks/processes (27%)
  • Reduce transportation (24%)
  • Outsource work (18%)
  • Turn down work opportunities (16%)
