The recent trend toward more temporary employment shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and staffing agencies like AtWork Group are paying attention.
Last November, temporary jobs were higher than they’d been since April of 2000, with nearly three million temporary workers in the American workforce.
For a staffing franchise like AtWork Group, that means we’re opening more offices and providing companies in more locations around the country with qualified temporary and temp-to-hire workers. Businesses are eager to recruit flexible workforces that can adapt according to the economy at any given time. Analysts expect the numbers of temp workers to keep rising this year – and so far the numbers reflect that.
The temporary staffing trend is helping unemployment numbers – economic experts say the numbers are slowly declining and will continue to go down as the year progresses, thanks to an average of more than 200,000 jobs being added each month, including temporary jobs. Fields like accounting, IT, finance, and engineering are adding more workers too, making it a good time to be in one of those concentrations.
Last year, more than eight percent of American companies made use of staffing agencies. That number will likely be exceeded this year. While businesses are starting to increase overall hiring this year, they’re more likely than ever before to make use of staffing services.
