(Sacramento, CA)
Monday, April 01, 2013

The survey covers the second-quarter of 2013.

"In April, May, June, there's lots of hiring ahead."

Rick Reed conducted the survey for Pacific Staffing. He says 75% of the companies he polled plan to employ new workers.
 
Last quarter, 57% of the region's top employers said they'd be hiring…and a year ago it was 71%.
 
He says companies hiring in the next few months are motivated by two things:
 
"…50% are hiring for growth of their workforce which is the largest expansion number in some time and another 50% say they're hiring for replacements as their motivation."
 
Reed says companies are looking for new employees with skills in software and information technology. In fact, demand is so strong employers say they're recruiting workers from out of the Sacramento market.
