Permanent and Temporary Hiring to Increase in the Back Half of 2014

Upbeat mid-year forecast by CareerBuilder indicates more aggressive employers.

A midyear job forecast by HR firm CareerBuuilder points to sustained job growth in the second half of 2014. Nearly half of U.S. employers plan to add full-time, permanent headcount over the next six months, and one-third plan to hire temporary or contract workers – both improvements over the same period in 2013.

"The 2014 midyear forecast shows employers are expecting forward movement in all categories of hiring."

"The results of this year's survey are indicative of a more assured employer population compared to 2013 when companies were, to some extent, irresolute when it came to adding permanent staff," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. "Back then, employers anticipated a spike in temporary employment in the second half of the year while permanent employment was to remain flat. The 2014 midyear forecast shows employers are expecting forward movement in all categories of hiring. Jobs will also be added in a variety of areas, heavily favoring job seekers with expertise in technology, financial operations, communications and other specialized fields."

  • 47% of employers plan to hire full-time, permanent employees, up from 44% last year
  • 27% plan to hire part-time employees, up from 25% last year
  • 33% plan to hire temporary or contract workers, up from 31% last year
