As Arlington Resources looks forward to celebrating our 20th anniversary this month, we look at the role of flexible staffing in the work force and where it is today.
The temp penetration rate — temp jobs as a percent of total employment — rose to 2.069% in July 2017. “The temporary penetration rate continues to increase at a solid pace, even at record levels, giving more evidence of a secular shift,” said Tony Gregoire, Director of Research, The Americas, at Staffing Industry Analysts.
As more workers in America look for alternative work arranges and additional opportunities to supplement their incomes, temporary and contract staffing services can fulfill their needs. With nearly thirty-one percent of workers within the United States currently employed as contingent workers, companies are granted access to a more diverse, and affordable, group of employees. Thus this rise of the role of temp jobs in today’s workforce can lead to a competitive edge for companies throughout America.
We look forward to helping you with your recruiting and staffing needs!
