Businesses Here Preparing to Hire

June 15, 2007

A new study reports that 28% of Costa Rican businesses are getting ready to hire.

The study, carried out by temp agency Manpower Costa Rica, found that almost a third of Costa Rican businesses plan on adding to their work forces in the third quarter of the year. Another 6% plan on making cuts, and 1% didn’t have clear plans.

Sectors that reported an intention to hire included construction, transportation and communication, while the manufacturing sector reports weaker expectations.

In May, Manpower released a different study that said high employment demand wasn’t necessarily being met: 93% of the Costa Rican companies responding to that survey reported difficulty finding qualified people to hire.
