Toledo-area hiring seen stronger than the nation's

Stronger hiring prospects in metro Toledo are forecast for the end of this year, even better than the national average, a new survey has found.

One of every three employees intends to add jobs in the October through December period, compared with 28 percent nationally, according to Manpower Inc., a staffing agency.

The firm's latest quarterly poll, released today, said 10 percent of local employers expect to reduce payrolls, compared with 8 percent nationally.

Best hiring prospects are in manufacturing, transportation, and stores, the firm found.

A year ago for the end of the year period in metro Toledo, 27 percent expected to hire and 7 percent to cut workers, the survey found.

Nationally, 14,000 employers are survey.

Elsewhere in the region, in Findlay, 37 percent of businesses anticipate hiring and 3 percent cutting; in Lima, 33 percent to hire and 3 percent to trim; in Defiance, 20 percent to add staff and 7 percent to reduce it; and in Sandusky, 30 percent to increase employment and none to cut them.
