A new report shows several companies in Wisconsin could boost their workforce before the end of the year.
The fourth quarter Manpower Employment Outlook Survey found 22 percent of the companies questioned about their hiring plans expect to increase staff levels between October and December. Another seven-percent plan to lay off workers, while 70 percent expect to maintain current staff levels.
The figures are weaker compared to the hiring intentions in the third quarter survey, but similar to one year ago.
