Taipei, March 15 (CNA) More businesses in Taiwan are seeking to hire than to downsize, according to a survey conducted by workforce firm ManpowerGroup, which found that 43 percent of respondents wanted more employees while only 4 percent wanted fewer. That leaves Taiwan with a net change in employment of 39 percent, second in the world only to India, an indication that Taiwan is riding the high of a global economic recovery. Another 51 percent of respondents said that the number of staff will remain unchanged, while the remainder said they have not yet decided. ManpowerGroup's global employment outlook polled 65,000 enterprises from 42 countries, including 1,071 Taiwanese employers and personnel officials. Net change in employment in Singapore trails far behind Taiwan's at 18 percent. China had a score of 16 percent, while Hong Kong's was 14 percent. The group said that Taiwanese employers were looking to hire as a reflection of optimism for a better economy in the second quarter. (By Stacy Wu and Lilian Wu)
