U.S. temporary staffing revenue increased 14% last year, with
growth higher than anticipated for this point in the business
cycle, according to Staffing Industry Analysts. “In a year
marked by modest GDP [gross domestic product] growth of 1.7%, the
strong growth in temporary staffing revenue in 2011 is further
evidence of a secular shift in demand above the expansion
predicted by GDP growth, based upon the trend of the past 16
years,” says SIA research associate Timothy Landhuis.
“We project that U.S. staffing industry revenue will expand
by 10% in 2012.”
