Amer Zureikat, VP sales, Bayt.com, said: \"The level of regional hiring activity remains relatively encouraging given the regional economic backdrop. \"However it is clear that in some parts of the region companies seem to be favouring a climate of cautious cost-consciousness specifically in terms of HR growth.\" The Job Index also asked respondents what their hiring expectancy was going to be in a year\'s time, with 67 percent of the MENA region\'s organisations expecting to hire in the long term.
