Growth in staffing indicates trend

Posted on December 17th, 2012 Read time: 1 minutes

New figures reveal the staffing industry is primed for growth in the upcoming year, as more companies are looking to hire on new staff to support expansion plans. While businesses are recovering from the economic downturn and starting to turn profits, it is still important to reduce unnecessary costs whenever possible.

One way many companies are increasing efficiency while lowering expenses is by outsourcing staffing and recruiting practices to third-party human resources providers. As experts in the field, human resources providers not only take on the tasks of finding and interviewing potential new hires, but also manage the benefits and compensation of staff to relieve in-house HR departments from the time-consuming duties. When third-party providers with expertise and resources take on HR tasks, companies can leverage full-time employees to contribute to strategy sessions and special projects rather than day-to-day paperwork.

According to the latest statistics from the U.S. staffing industry, staffing revenue will reach $135 billion in 2013, exceeding pre-recession levels. Each month in 2013, the United States is projected to add at least 143,500 jobs, as companies continue to grow. With the expected expansions in several industries, third-party human resources departments will likely be tapped to take on hiring and financial duties for optimal results and efficiency.
