New Data From Quarterly ASA Staffing Employment and Sales Survey
Staffing employment decreased 4.7% in the third quarter of 2019 compared with the same period in 2018, which was a year full of highs.
Temporary and contract staffing sales totaled $34.3 billion in the third quarter of 2019, down 2.3% from the same quarter last year.
“In a growing economy and ever-tightening labor market, businesses are placing an even greater premium on staffing companies’ ability to source qualified candidates,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “Because job seekers have more options today, employers really need to sharpen their focus on employee engagement in order to attract and retain top talent.”
