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.
