ASA Staffing Index Monthly Report, November 2014

ASA Staffing Index Continues to Climb

Staffing employment for the week of Nov. 10–16 climbed to 105.84, according to the ASA Staffing Index—the highest value since the index’s inception in June 2006. Temporary and contract staffing employment increased 0.67% from the prior week and was 3.17% higher than the same week last year. That same week also will be used in the November monthly employment situation report that will be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Dec. 5.

The ASA Staffing Index has reached a new all-time record high,” said Richard Wahlquist, president and chief executive officer of the American Staffing Association. “With an improving economy, staffing and recruiting firms are well positioned to help more job seekers find temporary and permanent employment.”

A report on the weekly ASA Staffing Index is publicly released every month based on a survey panel of staffing companies curated by ASA.
