The great transformation of the staffing service industry now serves a pivotal function in the US economy as it creates job opportunities more rapidly than the overall economy.
Lombard, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/27/2014 -- Over the years, Canada was able to breed more “contract” or “non-standard” jobs as compared to the standard types of job. In the US, the same trend is being observed. Flexibility. This is the root cause of the ever-increasing demand for these contract jobs. The growing number of people who desire to work for contract jobs is brought about by the convenience that flexibility brings to those who need to balance their family responsibilities with their work, to those who need to pursue their studies, and even to those who are on their way to retirement.
Based on a study conducted a few months ago concerning economic growth and labor market improvement, it shows that staffing companies like Express Employment Professionals are on a rise as a result of how staffing employment has become a concurrent economic needle and a leading employment gauge. As measured by gross domestic product, staffing employment development corresponds with economic trends. The direct relationship clearly indicates that staffing employment grows as the economy becomes better.
According to a survey conducted by a Naperville staffing company, in 2013, contract staffing jobs summed up to $109.2 billion which is equivalent to a 4.3% increase as compared to 2012’s data. With the current figures, staffing placement sales are anticipated to breed to about 10% in 2015.
Businesses’ demand to hire workers through staffing agencies is on an increasing trend as a way to match their workforce requirement depending on the season. It is important to note that businesses do not resort to staffing agencies so they can pay lower wages to workers. Based on the trends, businesses are more likely to rely to staffing agencies because of business cycles and unexpected growth, filling in of long term absences of regular employees, a good way of filling in relievers while waiting for replacements, and for special project purposes. Some companies even identify the strength of staffing agencies to pre-select potential employees for regular job assignments.
On another note, what is good about contract jobs is that they are not just created for those who want flexibility and a way to regain a satisfactorily control of their own destiny. Contract jobs are in fact a bridge towards securing permanent employment. And this is advantageous for those who are either fresh out of college or are deprived of getting a full time regular employment for the longest time.
Indeed, staffing services are charting a new route when it comes to employment woes. The great transformation of the staffing service industry now serves a pivotal function in the US economy as it creates job opportunities more rapidly than the overall economy.
