Most Singapore employers are expected to continue hiring steadily this year, according to a report released by recruitment consultancy Michael Page on Thursday.

But the 2014 Michael Page Salary & Employment Forecast for Singapore also noted that salary increases will remain conservative this year.

The report said that 88 per cent of employers surveyed expect hiring activity to hold steady or improve in 2014.

This is "an optimistic forecast for Singapore's employment market in the coming 12 months," said the consultancy.
