New Data From Quarterly ASA Staffing Employment and Sales Survey

U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 3.1 million temporary and contract workers per week in the second quarter of 2019, according to data released today by the American Staffing Association—remaining above three million for 21 consecutive quarters.

Staffing employment decreased 3.4% in the second quarter of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018, which was an 18-year high for the second quarter.

“Although down slightly from last year’s high, staffing employment remained on par with the second quarter average of recent years,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “And while the demand for temporary and contract employees is still very good across most sectors, industry growth is being constrained by a shortage of qualified talent in a very tight labor market.”

Temporary and contract staffing sales totaled $34.1 billion in the second quarter of 2019, down 1.4% from the same quarter last year.

On a quarter-to-quarter basis, staffing employment grew 0.9% from the first quarter to the second quarter. Temporary and contract staffing sales increased 3.8%.

ASA Launches Training Course to Help Keep Temporary, Contract Employees Free From Harassment at Work https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2019/08/15/asa-launches-training-course-to-help-keep-temporary/ Thu, 15 Aug 2019 13:42:51 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?p=132374 The American Staffing Association has introduced a new training solution for its staffing agency members to assist them in complying with federal, state, and local workplace harassment laws. The goal of the program is to help ensure that the millions of temporary and contract employees on assignment in the U.S. each business day are free from harassment.

ASA is partnering with Kantola Training Solutions to provide a full-service and cost-effective training solution to its members. Co-developed by Littler, the world’s largest labor and employment firm, the online program covers all federal, state, and local requirements, and will continually be updated as new laws are passed.

Staffing agencies are required to comply with all applicable employment laws and temporary and contract workers are protected by these laws, including those addressing harassment. Several states and municipalities, including California, New York State— and New York City—currently require by law that organizations provide regular workplace harassment prevention training to employees. However, it is a staffing industry best practice for all companies—even those operating in states where training is not mandated by law—to offer such training to their employees.

“The prevention of workplace harassment is a top priority of the staffing industry, and ASA is committed to helping staffing agencies promote both lawful and mutually beneficial relationships with everyone they place on assignment with clients,” said Stephen C. Dwyer, Esq., ASA general counsel. “The ASA workplace harassment prevention training course is the first staffing-specific solution to market, and addresses the unique considerations of the joint employer relationship between staffing agencies and clients.”

The program is being provided with support from ASA corporate partner World Wide Specialty Programs.

“Protecting and enhancing temporary and contract employee safety and well-being is very important to ASA and its member companies, and support of Safe + Sound Week underscores this commitment,” said Stephen C. Dwyer, Esq., ASA general counsel. “ASA is proud to serve as a Safe + Sound Week partner, and to collaborate with OSHA and the other sponsors on programs and initiatives to help ensure the safety of the U.S. temporary and contract workforce.”

Hamilton-Ryker Renews Safety Standard of Excellence Mark From ASA https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2019/08/08/hamilton-ryker-renews-safety-standard-of-excellence-mark-from-asa/ Thu, 08 Aug 2019 15:54:22 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?p=131953 Program Aims to Reduce Temporary and Contract Employee Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities

Hamilton-Ryker, a staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions company headquartered in Tennessee, recently renewed the Safety Standard of Excellence mark from the American Staffing Association. The program, developed by ASA and the National Safety Council, promotes staffing industry-wide safety standards through a uniform national program.

By participating in the Safety Standard of Excellence program, staffing agencies, their placed employees, and clients can build knowledge and a mutually beneficial relationship to identify and mitigate or even eliminate workplace hazards and exposures, ensure clear communication between the agencies and clients, and clearly delineate responsibilities of each party—all intended to reduce temporary and contract employee injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

Renewal of the mark involves the successful completion of an assessment process, conducted by NSC, to ensure the staffing agency is continually enhancing its safety program and utilizing industry best practices.

“We are honored that the American Staffing Association and National Safety Council have renewed our Safety Standard of Excellence mark,” said Kelly McCreight, Hamilton-Ryker chief executive officer. “The renewal validates our company-wide focus on the well-being of our employees and collaboration with safety-minded clients.”

Promoting and ensuring temporary and contract employee safety and well-being is the responsibility of every staffing agency. In 2013, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched the temporary worker initiative focused on compliance with safety and health requirements when temporary and contract workers are employed under the joint or dual employment of a staffing agency and a host employer. The initiative asserts both host employers and staffing agencies have roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements and they share responsibility for ensuring worker safety and health.

The Safety Standard of Excellence program is sponsored by World Wide Specialty Programs.

Staffing World® 2019 Features First-Ever ‘Tech Wednesday’ https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2019/08/01/sw19-tech-wednesday/ Thu, 01 Aug 2019 19:21:20 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?p=131726 Full Day of Technology-Related Learning Opportunities to Address Staffing Industry Top Challenges

Staffing World, the American Staffing Association’s annual convention and expo—Oct. 15–17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this year, will for the first time feature “Tech Wednesday,” an entire day dedicated to technology solutions for staffing agencies.

Tech Wednesday provides a platform for Staffing World attendees to engage with peers and learn from industry experts and suppliers about best practices for choosing and implementing technology solutions in their companies.

“ASA members rate technology solution selection and adoption as a top ‘up-at-night’ issue,” said Steve Berchem, CSP, ASA chief operating officer. “Tech Wednesday at Staffing World 2019 provides attendees with the unique opportunity to discover, learn about, and discuss a wide array of staffing industry-specific tools and technologies to boost their company’s efficiency and productivity.”

Among this year’s reimagined Staffing World offerings, Tech Wednesday offers an entire learning track focused on staffing technology—including dozens of Tech Talks (quick, “TED Talk”-style presentations covering the most pressing technology-related issues facing the staffing industry today, including artificial intelligence, mobile apps, e-learning, scheduling automation, social media, and more). These are part of the Staffing World Tech Park, back for its third year by popular demand.

“Technology is fundamentally transforming the staffing industry, and to remain competitive staffing agencies must stay abreast of the latest advancements,” said Michael Whitmer, CSP, Recruit Global Staffing global chief information officer, and chairman of the ASA staffing technology taskforce. “Too often, companies get caught up in the sales and marketing hype of technology, but don’t really understand how technology will provide value to their business. Tech Wednesday at Staffing World will help attendees navigate the complex staffing-specific technology ecosystem to make smarter and more educated investment decisions.”

Although most of the sessions at Staffing World on Wednesday, Oct. 16, will focus on technology, additional learning opportunities on other topics—such as digital marketing, leadership, and employment law—will be offered, as well as valuable networking opportunities for attendees.

Renewal of the mark involves the successful completion of an assessment process, conducted by NSC, to ensure the staffing agency is continually enhancing its safety program and utilizing industry best practices.

“Safety isn’t always the priority for some companies, and that is a major mistake,” said Corey Berghoefer, senior vice president of risk management and insurance, Randstad US. “Creating a safe work environment and culture is critical to an organization’s ability to effectively recruit and retain skilled workers, and even increase employee engagement and morale.”

Staffing Job Growth Eases in July https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2019/07/23/staffing-job-growth-eases-in-july/ Tue, 23 Jul 2019 14:09:32 +0000 https://americanstaffing.net/?p=131357 ASA Staffing Index Monthly Report, July 2019

Staffing jobs for the week of July 8–14 grew 5.5% from the prior week, which included the Fourth of July, according to the ASA Staffing Index. Survey respondents cited the lingering effect of the holiday as a factor that hampered growth. The index increased to a value of 93, but it was 4.8% lower than the same week last year—the 2018 reading was a record high for the 28th week of the year.

The ASA Staffing Index four-week moving average held at 93, down 3.3% from the same period in 2018. Similar to the weekly reading, the year-to-year four-week average gap grew as staffing jobs did not fully offset the holiday decline. So far in 2019, staffing employment has not matched the comparative readings of 2018, most of which were all-time peaks.

This week, containing the 12th day of the month, will be used in the July monthly employment situation report that will be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Aug. 2.

The ASA Staffing Index is reported nine days after each workweek, making it a near real-time measure of staffing employment trends. ASA research shows that staffing employment is a coincident economic indicator.

Reporting of the ASA Staffing Index has been enhanced. For more information, visit americanstaffing.net/index. You can also follow ASA research on Twitter.
