Amid financial turmoil, the economy has struggled to improve. However, job growth from one important sector, the contract staffing industry, has helped fight both unemployment and underemployment.
More than 2.91 million people are employed by staffing companies every business day World Wide– that’s nearly three million people involved in the industry. In addition, a total of 11.5 million contract employees are hired by staffing firms every year, 80 percent of them are working full time and have been permanently placed with a client company.
Contract, Flexible and temp work provides valuable services for companies looking to hire but may be unsure of the current job market, one of our biggest goals is that we believe we can provide good people, that fit the qualifications that our employees are looking, and show the willingness and ability to become permanent employees with our clients.
Among other benefits of contract work, Stateline Staffing offers opportunities for workers to find their way not only to permanent employment, we also to assist our clients in bridging the gaps with the ups and downs in production with flexible and temporary staffing. The merits are recognized by all, as many contract employees believe temporary or contract work made them more employable overall due to the ability to build their experiences and work histories when permanent work was not available. Contract employment is a great way to obtain a permanent job, not only can an employer “try out” an employee before they make the financial obligation in hiring them on permanent, but the employee can “try out” the company to be certain that they will be a perfect career long fit. Our temporary employees receive Holiday pay after 6 months of service and vacation pay after one year of service. We also offer other benefits to our temporary and contract employees such as financial counseling, Tax preparation, and interview readiness and resume writing assistance; we also coach them in their interviewing skills and confidence when meeting with a potential employer.
Flexibility a growing desire among workers
Some critics say that the lack of structure for contract employees should be a deterrent, but many workers believe differently, as the added flexibility and choice in projects and daily work is seen as a plus. Two-thirds of staffing employees say their job decisions were based on their choice of assignments, while 23 percent prefer the shifting responsibilities of contract work to traditional employment, according to the Association’s figures. A third of staffing employees said they enjoy the challenges different jobs present.
We like to recognize all those who make an impact to our nation’s workforce and economy as a contract worker. And the companies that allow us to provide their contract, temporary and seasonal employees.
