OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The hiring outlook in all regions of North America continues to remain steady for administrative and commercial jobs, according to a recent hiring trends survey conducted by Express Employment Professionals, one of the nation's largest privately-held staffing companies.

Express surveyed nearly 17,000 current and former clients across the United States and Canada.

Hiring trends for the first quarter of 2012 in all regions are expected to be greatest in commercial and light industrial, with 30 percent of respondents planning new hires, while 21 percent anticipate adding administrative and office clerical staff. Twenty-seven of respondents plan to fill positions in "other" sectors that include clinical/healthcare, customer service, food service, general labor, maintenance, medical/dental/nursing and sales.

Additionally, 15 percent plan to hire for accounting and finance, 12 percent plan to add marketing jobs, 11 percent of respondents plan to hire for engineering positions, and eight percent have plans to hire information technology specialists.

While companies are planning new hires, the current ease of recruiting and filling positions is up, according to the survey. In fact, half of the respondents believe it is "somewhat difficult" to recruit and fill positions. Employee referrals, online job boards and staffing firms remain the top three recruiting resources for companies. Across the board, contractors are needed to augment "gaps" while companies look for core employees.

When considering new hires, employers who responded to the hiring trends survey are looking closely at work ethic and integrity, attitude and credible work history.

Worldwide, Express Employment Professionals puts nearly 300,000 people to work each year and has more than 550 offices in three countries. Express provides expertise in evaluation hire, temporary staffing, professional search and human resources and works across a wide variety of industries. Sales for the Oklahoma City-based company totaled more than $2 billion in 2011. For more information, visit www.expresspros.com.
