Staffing Industry Facts

BUILDING A TALENT PIPELINE THAT “RE-RECRUITS” TALENTED WORKERS IS ESSENTIAL.

Featured Stories, Hiring Tips and Advise, Industry trend, Staffing Industry Facts

Getting candidates’ attention has gone from hard to harder — not to mention sustaining that attention for more than mere seconds. Today, you need to keep your candidate flow strong with a continuous and thoughtful recruitment process rather than a one-and-done strategy

Resolution for 2015: Capture more candidates and reduce drop-off by continually engaging your potential talent. The key to workforce planning is all about creating and nurturing a database of pre-qualified candidates so they’re ready to be contacted and called in to interview at any moment.  An easy-to-find, branded talent network will help you capture and re-engage more candidates over a longer period of time, as it works behind the scenes to send members targeted job alerts when your new positions are posted.

Did You Know? 65 percent of candidates are likely to accept a future staffing firm assignment.

What this means: It’s great to see how many candidates are willing to accept a future assignment with staffing firms, and the reason for a majority that’s not likely to accept a future assignment is about wanting permanent work. Despite misconceptions about reasons behind candidates’ unwillingness to accept future assignments, for a majority of candidates it’s not about the pay or recruiters or other factors, but about wanting a permanent/full-time job.

Staffing and Recruiting Grows Faster Than the Economy and the Labor Market

Industry trend, Market Review, Staffing Industry Facts

More than six years since the end of the Great Recession, the U.S. economy has yet to fully recover. While there has been expansion, this long road to recovery has been erratic. And although the jobs lost during the 18-month recession have been regained and the unemployment rate has declined, the percentage of people participating in the labor force has dropped to the lowest level in four decades. There are nearly six million open jobs, and more than eight million people out of work—contributing to the longer than anticipated recovery cycle. Meanwhile, the staffing and recruiting industry has been growing faster than gross domestic product and overall employment at rates unlike any prior recovery. Are these trends unique to the current expansion, or has there been a fundamental change in the role of staffing and recruiting in the economy?
