Fiscal Times (01/21/12)
For many in the nation’s work force, compensation remains flat, bonuses are smaller or nonexistent, and perks are being cut. With unemployment at 8.5% and competition for jobs fierce, most workers are staying put. An option growing in popularity is outsourcing work to contractors and avoiding employee benefits entirely. A survey from ASA corporate partner CareerBuilder found that 35% of U.S. companies have smaller staffs than before the recession, and many are turning to staffing and recruiting companies to fill in the gap.
