2013 Staffing Industry Predictions

Posted by | October 15, 2013 | Uncategorized

Despite the economic crisis this past year, the staffing industry is expected to reach a high of $213.3 billion in 2013, according to Staffing Industry Analysts.

This is exciting news for both the staffing industry… and the economy.  What is so compelling about the forecast is that the growth is represented in many staffing verticals including industrial, engineering, clinical, life sciences, marketing/creative fields and information technology.

Staffing Industry Analysts did point out that some staffing segments will remain sluggish including temp-to-hire, nursing (both travel and per diem), direct hire and retained search.  There remains an almost certainty that growth will decrease due to several factors that include cuts in federal spending, potential tax increases on consumers and businesses, and slow growth in Europe and Asia.
