This edition of the ‘Antal Global Snapshot’ is based upon survey forms and telephone interviews completed by Line Managers and HR Managers from over 8,280 companies, professional partnerships and financial institutions across 50 countries in February and March 2015.

Each respondent was asked whether they were currently hiring or letting go professional / managerial staff and whether they intended to do so over the coming quarter. All respondents were guaranteed anonymity to encourage open and honest answers.
