Locating talent is hard, locating top performers is down right difficult. Top performers often have a different mindset which helps them to lead the pack in the workplace and can make attracting and maintaining them all the more difficult.
In the United States nearly 15 million people are employed each year by staffing firms. While previously seen as a source of entry level jobs, the staffing industry has transformed itself into the gateway to confidential job searches, permanent careers and access to the nation’s top hiring managers.
Here’s what staffing employees recently shared with the American Staffing Association:
- 9 out of 10 staffing employees said staffing work made them more employable
- 35% were offered a permanent job by a client where they were placed, 66% of those offered accepted the offers of permanent employment
- The average staffing employee makes $17/hr while some make more than $100/hr
- 1 out of 5 staffing employees say scheduling flexibility is a key reason for choosing temporary or contract work
- 90% of staffing employees report that they are satisfied with their staffing company

As the talent gap continues to grow, employers are looking to the Millennial and Gen Z populations to complete their teams. It’s estimated that by 2020, Millennials alone will make up nearly half of the workforce. In order to attract and maintain Millennials in your workforce, it’s important to understand that their values and interests vary greatly from other generations.
Considering a position through a staffing firm may be intimidating if you have never partnered with one before.
