Employers add San Antonio healthcare jobs

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

More employers are looking to add more San Antonio healthcare jobs in the second quarter, according to a Careerbuilder survey.

One third of employers (34 percent) plan to add full-time, permanent employees over the next three months and 37 percent plan to hire temporary or contract workers.

Hiring in the first three months of 2016 outperformed the same period in 2015. Thirty-seven percent of employers hired full-time, permanent employees, up from 35 percent last year. The percentage of employers who decreased headcount (9 percent) is on par with last year. Fifty-three percent reported no change in their headcount while 1 percent said their company is undecided.

Looking ahead, 34 percent of employers plan to add full-time, permanent staff in the second quarter, up from 32 percent last year. Seven percent expect to decrease staff, down slightly from 8 percent last year. Fifty-five percent anticipate no change while 5 percent are undecided.

Industries expected to match or exceed the national average for adding full-time, permanent headcount in the second quarter are:

  • Health Care (50 or more employees) – 44 percent
  • Financial Services – 42 percent
  • Leisure & Hospitality – 41 percent
  • Information Technology – 40 percent

While large organizations are adding staff at a faster rate, the increased confidence small- and medium-sized businesses have displayed in previous quarters is expected to carry over into Q2:

  • 50 or fewer employees – 24 percent plan to increase the number of full-time, permanent staff in Q2, up from 23 percent last year; those reducing headcount remained at 4 percent
  • 250 or fewer employees – 29 percent plan to increase the number of full-time, permanent staff in Q2, up from 27 percent last year; those reducing headcount remained at 6 percent
  • More than 500 employees – 41 percent plan to increase the number of full-time, permanent staff in Q2, up from 38 percent last year; those reducing headcount decreased from 9 percent last year to 8 percent

Many more San Antonio construction jobs have been added, according to recent labor statistics.

Private sector employment increased by 200,000 jobs from February to March according to the March ADP National Employment Report.

Payrolls for businesses with 49 or fewer employees increased by 86,000 jobs in March, up from February’s downwardly revised 68,000. Employment at companies with 50-499 employees increased by 75,000 jobs, up from February’s 60,000. Employment at large companies — those with 500 or more employees — dropped off to 39,000 which is about half of February’s 77,000. Companies with 500-999 employees added 20,000 jobs, up from 14,000 in February. Companies with over 1,000 employees fell from 63,000 jobs added in February to 18,000 this month.

Goods-producing employment rose by 9,000 jobs in March, up from a downwardly revised 2,000 in February. The construction industry added 17,000 jobs, which was down from February’s 24,000. Meanwhile, manufacturing added 3,000 jobs after losing 9,000 the previous month.

Service-providing employment rose by 191,000 jobs in March, down from 204,000 in February. The ADP National Employment Report indicates that professional/business services contributed 28,000 jobs, down sharply from February’s 51,000. Trade/transportation/utilities grew by 42,000, well above the 24,000 jobs added the previous month. Financial activities added 14,000 jobs which is in line with the average monthly increase in that sector over the past year.

“The Trade, Transportation and Utilities sector had its best month of employment gains since last June,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of theADP Research Institute. “Steady employment growth and accelerating wage growth in the workforce appear to be benefitting the Trade segment in particular.”
