Commenting on the group’s performance, chairman and CEO Jonas Prising said: “We made good progress with solid results in the third quarter and we are well positioned to finish 2017 with strong performance.

“We expect the broad-based global improvement in both employer hiring intentions and economic growth to provide us with good opportunities for continued profitable growth.

“We are anticipating the fourth quarter of 2017 diluted net earnings per share to be in the range of $2.01 to $2.09, which includes an estimated favourable currency impact of 12 cents,” Prising said.
