Hungarian companies plan to raise headcount by 3%, on average, between April and June, a survey by staffing company ManpowerGroup shows, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The representative survey of 560 employers on their hiring plans shows manufacturing sector companies plan an 11% increase in people on payroll, while companies in the commerce sector expect headcount to rise 6%. In the financial and business sectors, headcount is set to climb 5%.

Catering companies expect to cut staff by 6% as pandemic restrictions weigh.
