ZRG Partners Q1 2018 Global Industrial Hiring Index

Rochelle Park, New Jersey (June 21, 2018) – ZRG Partners, a client-focused global executive search firm driven by data analytics, announced the results of its Q1 2018 Global Industrial Hiring Index.

The Q1 2018 Index posted an 8% increase in quarter-over-quarter global hiring demand. Q1 results show strong employment across all market subsectors.

Nate Frank, Managing Director, ZRG Industrial Practice stated “Not surprisingly the Q1 hiring index posted another strong quarter. Most intriguing to us however is the continued flow of PE dollars into industrials. The strength of investment into Oil & Gas is particularly encouraging for that subsector and for the industrial space as a whole.”

Q1 2018 Private Equity was up 54% over the same time period last year, posting $35.4 billion in investments.
