Monster Employment Index: Italien
September 2009 Index Highlights:
- The Monster Employment Index Italy dipped 11 points or nine percent in September leaving Italian job offerings at their lowest level since September 2006, a three year low.
- Healthcare and education saw long term growth compared to HR which continued its decreasing trend.
- Lazio showed the largest decline of all Italian regions.
The decline in Italian online job availability in September partly reflects a seasonal slowdown in recruitment activity typically seen at this time of year. Despite the European Commission’s latest forecast that the Italian economy will grow in the third quarter, businesses still appear reluctant to hire. Year-on-year offerings were down 26 percent, a lower rate of decline compared to Europe as a whole.
