Staffing Employment Eased in 2019

Following the record highs posted in 2018, full-year 2019 data released today by the American Staffing Association show how talent supply constraints continue to challenge providers of workforce solutions. U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 3.1 million temporary and contract workers per week in 2019, compared with 3.2 million in 2018—which was the highest on record.

“In this tight labor market, staffing agencies have more orders than they can fill—which is great for job seekers looking for immediate employment opportunities,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer.

ASA data show average weekly staffing employment increased 1.4% in 2018 before easing 4.1% in 2019. Annual temporary and contract staffing sales in 2019 totaled $136.7 billion, 1.3% less than the record high of $138.4 billion in 2018.
