Tight Manpower Emplayment In Mining Industry

A new survey released this week reveal that employers in the Mining and Construction sectors will tighten hiring strategies for the next three months.

The survey, which measures hiring intentions for the coming quarter, revealed that 25 per cent of employers in mining cone crusher and construction expect to increase hiring (down from 34 per cent last quarter), while the number of companies planning to decrease hiring has increased to 17 per cent (up from 11 per cent last quarter).

According to Mr Crawley, projects in the sector will continue to grow and so should hiring and workforce strategies.

“Skilled Trade workers and Engineers continue to be hard to find across the country so employers need to be looking at a variety of workforce strategies to combat these shortages,

“Although employers in this sector have indicated that their hiring outlook will drop in the next few months workforce planning is still a high priority. Employers should be looking at variety of strategies to combat skills shortages; hiring workers who are a teachable fit; using strategic migration; employing flexible workers; and recruiting from underemployed groups such as older workers.”

The Australian Net Employment Outlook dropped to +10%, down from +12% last quarter and +18% last year, continuing on a downward trend that began this time last year.

“Employer sentiment nationally is being affected by the high exchange rate, low consumer sentiment and uncertainty in Europe, meaning that they are holding back hiring in many parts of the economy.

“The Manpower Employment Outlook Survey suggests employers are looking ahead with flagging confidence levels, and responding to economic uncertainty by adjusting their workforce strategies from month to month,” Mr. Crawley said.

This market instability has led to some surprise results: Employers in the Transport & Utilities, and Wholesale & Retail sectors also reported a slight drop in hiring intentions for the coming quarter when compared with Q2 2012. The Services sector remained steady with a Net Employment Outlook of +14% and employers in Public Administration reported a minimal increase in hiring intentions with a Net Employment Outlook of +11%. wet magnetic separator:http://www.crusher-machine.com/25.html

By contrast, employers in the Finance, Insurance & Real Estate sector report the most improved forecast, up five percentage points from last quarter to a Net Employment Outlook of +19%. The research also reveals a slight improvement in hiring intentions from employers in the Manufacturing sector, up 3 percentage points quarter-over-quarter to a Net Employment Outlook of +7%.

Among the states, the employers in the Northern Territory and Queensland report more optimistic Outlooks of +18% and +14%, respectively, in anticipation of large liquefied natural gas projects that are ramping up in both regions.

The Outlook in Victoria dropped three percentage points from last quarter to a Net Employment Outlook of +5% with employers there bearing the brunt of the weaker forecasts in the Manufacturing and Retail sectors, as well as the effects of the State Government’s severe budget cuts.

Despite last month’s OECD Economic Outlook, which stated that Australia is set to experience strong economic growth in 2012/13 ahead of the U.S. and UK, employers are yet to see that growth in real terms.

“Australia’s business projections are strong. But employers are understandably cautious in their hiring and investment. We are working with clients to create talent strategies that bring the right skills into their organisation, maximise productivity and ensure they have the most effective workforce for the future,” Mr. Crawley said.
