Filed under: Daily News | Tags:,

Colorado Springs employers are expected to hire at a faster pace than any other city in the state during the third quarter of this year, according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey released Tuesday.

Between July and September, 22 percent of Colorado Springs employers surveyed by Manpower said they planned to hire employees.

Only 14 percent of Fort Collins employers said they intended to hire more workers; 12 percent of Greeley employers plan to hire and 18 percent of Boulder employers and 9 percent of Denver employers plan to hire.

Overall, hiring across the nation in the third quarter is expected to remain sluggish with some leveling of unemployment numbers.
