Business Exclusive: Uptick in Temporary Jobs Good Indicator of Hiring Rebound

Fort Myers News-Press (Florida) (04/08/12)

U.S. staffing companies were responsible for employing approximately 2.8 million temporary and contract workers per day in 2011, an 8% increase from a year earlier, according to the American Staffing Association. Staffing companies in Florida are seeing a modest uptick in demand for their services. “Health care has been the steady Eddie sector. But we’re seeing demand start to come back in construction and real estate,” says Jamie Conley, Fort Myers-based regional vice president for Robert Half International. He says the “purely temporary” positions are growing more quickly than the “temporary to permanent” positions being offered in Southwest Florida.
