Temporary & Contract Staffing Up 2.2%
Temporary and contract staffing employment was 2.2% higher for the week of May 7 to May 13 than the same week last year, according to the American Staffing Association’s staffing index.
It marked the fastest rate of year-over-year growth for this particular week in four years.
Month-over-month, the ASA Staffing Index edged down 0.1% but remained at a rounded reading of 97 for the week. This marks the best reading for this particular week since the start of the ASA Staffing Index in 2006 and continues a streak that began in April of record-high readings for the comparable week.
The index’s four-week moving average edged up for the ninth consecutive period to a rounded figure of 97, also a historically high value for the same period. Year over year, the four-week average rose 2.4%, its fastest pace since 2014.
A staffing agency can help when you're short an employee due to illness, medical leave, sudden departure or other unexpected circumstances that leave you crunched for time. The firm can also come to your rescue when workflow peaks, whether you've planned for such spikes or not. A good accounting temporary staffing agency can help you find the right professional during month-end closings, annual audits, quarterly financial reporting and tax season.
Today's Orange County & Los Angeles staffing agencies can also help you find an accounting or finance professional with specialized skills that your core team may be lacking. There's an increasing demand for workers in professions requiring a college degree and specialization in certain professions, including accounting and finance. Staffing firms represent specialists and experts you need to operate more efficiently and competitively.
Another benefit of working with an accounting temporary staffing agency is that you can evaluate an interim employee while he or she works and takes time to decide if the person would be a good fit for your 9-to-5 team. After assessing a specialist's or another temporary employee's work and soft skills, you may decide the candidate is the perfect fit the next time a full-time role opens up.
