ASA Staffing Index: Staffing Jobs Reach Ten-Month High in November

Staffing employment for the week of Nov. 9–15 edged up 0.4% from the prior week, holding at a value of 88 despite the Veterans Day holiday, according to the ASA Staffing Index. November marks a ten-month high for staffing jobs, as the index reached a value of 88 for the first time since January. Staffing employment was down 9.0% from the same week last year, which also included Veterans Day.

New starts were up for the ninth consecutive week, increasing 8.0% on average, with nearly half (48%) of staffing companies reporting gains in new assignments week-to-week.

“Despite the holiday and political uncertainty, the recovery of temporary jobs continues with steady increases week-to-week and solid advancement in new assignments,” said Cynthia Davidson, ASA senior director of research.

This week, containing the 12th day of the month, will be used in the November monthly employment situation report scheduled to be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Dec. 4.
