Wichita area employers expect to increase hiring at a moderate pace in the next quarter, according to the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey.

Thirteen percent of local companies expect to hire more employees between January to March, while 8 percent expect to cut staff, to yield of 5 percent net increase. Most of the remaining employers surveyed, 77 percent, expect to keep their current workforce.

That is less optimistic than the current quarter, when the net was 9 percent, but better than the first quarter of 2012, when the net was minus-1 percent.

Manpower is a national personnel placement company that tracks hiring trends by surveying businesses in markets across the U.S.
