Dutch labour market is improving

A regular global survey of hiring and firing trends covering over 12,800 organisations in 47 countries has found that the percentage of companies taking on staff at professional and managerial sector in the Netherlands has risen over the past quarter.

49% of organisations in the Netherlands said that they were currently hiring, increasing by 15% since last quarter. This figure is also expected to rise further over the next three months to 52%. These figures compare well with the global average of 52% of organisations currently taking on staff and 17% currently letting staff go.

Hiring levels in the rest of Western Europe were mixed. The highest number of businesses recruiting were in the UK at 61% while just 19% of organisations in Austria were hiring, the lowest percentage in the global survey.

"The last Antal International Global Snapshot indicated a long-anticipated return to stability in global markets," says Antal's CEO and Chairman, Tony Goodwin. "This edition of the survey confirms that stability. The overall results are almost exactly those predicted by the last report with 52% of organisations around the world taking on professional and managerial staff and only 17% reducing headcounts."
