Research carried out by Antal International for its Global Snapshot study shows that current hiring levels around the world have increased, with 52 per cent of respondents recruiting at a professional and managerial level, in comparison to 50 per cent in February.
Meanwhile, 52 per cent of firms are also to hire new staff, including sales recruitment candidates, in the coming quarter.
Antal's chief executive and chairman, Tony Goodwin, commented: "This edition of the survey confirms stability. The overall results are almost exactly those predicted by the last report, with 52 per cent of organisations around the world taking on professional and managerial staff and only 17 per cent reducing headcounts."
Earlier this week, a hiring trends survey carried out by Badenoch and Clark showed that there is a renewed focus on investing in people as organisations begin to recover from the effects of the recession and look to future growth.
