Chinese firms bullish on hiring

Chinese mainland employers are still the most confident in the Asia-Pacific region about hiring plans for the third quarter of this year, according to a report released in Shanghai on Tuesday by Hudson.

The talent recruitment and staffing services firm said about 56 percent of mainland employers surveyed said they will increase their work force in the July-September period, compared with only 37 percent in Hong Kong, 34 percent in Singapore and 29 percent in Australia, the report said.

The survey found 37 percent of mainland employers plan no changes to their head count while 6 percent intend to slash staff numbers.
