ManpowerGroup (MAN) is seeing favorable earnings estimate revision activity as of late, which is generally a precursor to an earnings beat.
British employers plan to hire staff at the slowest pace in three years because of uncertainty about the country's exit from the European Union, a survey by recruiting firm Manpower showed on Tuesday. "The companies which have powered Britain's economy through the immediate post-referendum period are easing off the gas," Mark Cahill, ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN - news) 's UK managing director, said. Britain's labour market remained strong in 2016 despite the shock of the Brexit vote.
Adecco (Swiss: ADEN.VX - news) said Britain's vote to quit the European Union has had only a limited negative impact on hiring, so far, though it could eventually help the largest staffing company's business in the country as the weaker pound supports exports. Zurich-based Adecco on Tuesday reported a 4 percent revenue increase from Britain and Ireland (Other OTC: IRLD - news) , when currency effects were stripped out, during its latest quarter, and said revenue growth had speeded up in October, CEO Alain Dehaze said. The effect of June's Brexit vote had so far been limited to weaker hiring in the financial sector, London and among permanent employees, a trend which the company was keeping an eye on, the executive said.
