93% Predict That 2016 Hiring Will Match/Exceed 2015

CHICAGO, Oct. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2016 real estate hiring forecast by Ferguson Partners Ltd. surfaced three hiring trends of note:

  • As the U.S. continues to be the “safe place” in the world for global capital to invest, survey respondents are positive about 2016 prospects.
  • In an effort to compensate for the “lost generation” of employees as well as to build their infrastructure, employers will be hiring primarily middle management and junior professionals.
  • Asset management executives will be much more in demand in 2016, as firms attempt to drive value and cash flow in their portfolios.

Survey participants suggest industry fundamentals are good and will continue. However, many worry about a plethora of global issues causing the “Wall of Worry”. Nonetheless, having survived the “2008 depression”, survey participants aren’t as troubled by the global uncertainty ranging from China’s slowdown, to stock market volatility, depressed oil prices, Fed policy, presidential elections, and unrest in the Middle East, to name just a few!
