The number of companies planning to hire new employees in the second quarter of this year has decreased in China, CNBC writes. According to a survey of 4 thousand 209 Chinese firms conducted by ManpowerGroup, only 6% of respondents stated their intention to increase their staff during this period. This result was the worst since the third quarter of 2017. The share of such companies in the first quarter of this year was 10%. 43% of survey participants are not sure that they will recruit new employees, while a quarter earlier their share was 19%. Improvement in recruitment rates is only planned by employers in the mining and construction industries.
