Most Businesses in Costa Rica Not Expecting To Hire in 2015

COSTA RICA BUSINESS NEWS — A survey of business by the Chamber of Private Enterprise found that 61% of companies in the country did not expect to hire new permanent employees for next year. However, it is hard to predict the future in a free market but it does demonstrate a cautious outlook for next year.

The 34% that intend to hire mostly are looking for unskilled and technical kinds of employees.

Jimenez told La Nacion, “The sector is losing confidence. We can say that they are continuing to be pessimistic and we have to point out that without additional investment, it is impossible to create new jobs.” The survey polled 400 businessmen.
