Working Temp Jobs Before Getting Hired Full Time Could Become New AverageNovember 22, 2011 - by Jared Cole
In an article last week, U.S. News & World Report featured Express Employment Professionals executive director of franchising, David Lewis, who discussed the trending outlook of employers temporarily hiring workers before making them full time.
With the U.S. economy showing slow recovery and growth, companies are wary to invest time, money, and energy in filling open positions with full-time staff. Contract staffing is seen as an effective means of filling vacancies with lower cost or risk.
The trend in hiring contingent staff is also becoming more acceptable and preferable among employees. Younger generations of workers are favoring the flexibility and sometimes higher pay that staffing agencies can offer employees with specialized skills compared to some entry-level jobs offered by big companies.
According to the American Staffing Association, sales from staffing agencies totaled $25.2 billion while employing an average of 2.82 million workers a day in third quarter 2011. It marks the seventh consecutive quarter of year-to-year staffing employment growth since 2009.
