    Hays sees profit ahead of market view after strong March hiring

    Staffing firms around the world have struggled with a sharp drop in fees, which led some of them to downsize their own workforce, as most sectors held back on new hires due to the global health crisis. Rival PageGroup said last week a hiring surge in March has given it confidence on its financial outlook for the year. Hays, which operates in 33 countries, said it expects operating profit for 2021 to be at least 85 million pounds ($116.82 million) compared with 135 million pounds in 2020.

    Resilience in tech hiring helps Hays promise bumper payouts

    The CEO of recruitment agency Hays said the COVID-19 pandemic had boosted its technology business as more sectors ramp up their digital presence due to lockdowns, enabling it to promise 150 million pounds in special dividends. Chief Executive Alistair Cox told Reuters on Thursday that Hays has seen relative resilience in its technology business, with some areas including London now operating at levels even higher than what they were at before the pandemic. "The world needs more technology-savvy people, all businesses need them, it is not just the technology industry," he said.
