Ad and marketing executives planning to hire soon

Posted on June 20th, 2014 Read time: 1 minutes

According to a new survey, 12 percent of ad and marketing executives plan to hire in the second half of 2014, Staffing Industry Analysts reported. The survey was done by The Creative Group, a member of Robert Half International, an employment agency. Companies seeking to expand like this could greatly benefit from temporary workers, since they can grow quickly along with the economy, and employers can test out their employees before hiring them. Additionally, acquiring more workers through an employer of record would allow a company to add employees without the paperwork involved in taxes, unemployment, and insurance, since that worker would technically be working for the employer of record.

In another sign that the economy is beginning to grow again, allowing businesses to expand, the long-term unemployed are seeing better odds of getting hired, according to Bloomberg. The number of workers who have been without work for 27 weeks or more fell in May to 3.37 million, which is a year-over-year reduction of almost one million people.

"It's about to cross the precipice, where you are seeing the long-term unemployed being on an equal footing with the short-term," said Jeffrey Joerres, executive chairman of ManpowerGroup, a staffing company.

Those seeking to avoid long-term unemployment might consider becoming temp workers.
