According to the ZRG Partners Global Hiring Index, hiring demand in equipment finance and lending showed another quarter of overall increase, driven primarily by U.S. and Germany hiring demand. The GLSI ended the quarter over 100 for the first time.
In addition to the U.S. markets and Germany continuing the quest for additional talent, the BRICS’s staged a comeback of sorts after a slower Q1 with India and Brazil both posting growth in demand for specialized lending talent.

According to the report, the big story is Germany, which has now four straight quarters of increases in demand while neighboring European countries still suffer from some ups and downs in the markets for talent. The UK softened from the big jump posted in Q1 but remains above 2014 levels, indicating the improved hiring optimism continued through the second quarter.   Mexico and South America has shown a steady and moderate decrease in hiring demand for four straight quarters, with Mexico showing the biggest drop off in the second quarter. A mixed bag of results around the world.
