He says, “Microsoft has doubled its employees' bonus pool and is making expansion plans. Google has committed to hiring more engineers and is moving ahead with the Google Village expansion in downtown San Jose which can house another 25,000 engineers.”

Chris Gray, UK Director at ManpowerGroup, told Talinternational: “These record hiring plans demonstrate the continuation of an employment trend, which sees businesses keeping their feet firmly on the gas, despite the familiar challenges with the UK labour market. Despite a shrinking workforce and with a large proportion of inactive workers, employers are still keen to recruit fresh talent to help them deliver their services, and to surf the wave of growth for as long as possible.”
