Houston Companies Celebrate National Staffing Employee Week

HOUSTON, TX – From September 10th – 16th, Houston’s companies will join organizations across the U.S. and celebrate National Staffing Employee Week. The holiday honors the millions of workersemployed through staffing firms nationwide.

“Employers are increasingly using staffing firms as part of their employment strategy,” says Jarrod Daniel, CEO of The Daniel Group.

The American Staffing Association reports that U.S. staffing agencies created more new jobs than any other industry during the economic recovery. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the sector added approximately half a million workers and accounted for 91% of total nonfarm job growth. U.S. staffing industry revenue is expected to expand by 10 percent in 2012 according to Staffing Industry Analysts.

A recent CareerBuilder survey additionally found a 12 percent increase in the number of employers planning to use contract or temporary workers this year. Daniel attributes the growth to the benefits that employers recognize from using staffing firms during a recovering economy:

  • Different hiring options (contract, contract-to-direct, direct-hire, executive search) offer employers flexibility with staffing

  • Staffing firms eliminate the “hidden costs” associated with hiring including payrolling, administrative costs, benefits spending and unemployment claims

  • Temporary and contract workers prevent employee burnout while increasing production levels

  • Staffing firms use their expansive recruiting network to identify top talent

“It is great to join companies from around the state in highlighting the hard work and dedication of these workers,” adds Daniel. “These employees are helping Houston’s businesses become more productive and competitive.”
