Refer to your news source of choice and you are bound to hear about employer reluctance to hire because of uncertainties regarding taxation, health care, the condition of the US economy, the European debt crisis and the associated long-term costs of hiring. Despite these challenges, businesses still have needs for skilled human resources, whether to replace departing employees or to buck the trend and drive growth in an era of economic doubt. How then can business leaders balance their need for quality employees with the concerns that are plaguing most businesses? The answer to this question was provided by a number of the recent jobs reports – bring human capital into your organization through a staffing firm. In recent job reports, over 31% of the new jobs added were through staffing firms. Given that individuals employed through staffing firms typically represent just 2% of the working population of the United States, this is an enlightening figure. Positions with staffing firms can range from short-term temporary assignments to longer term contract roles and even roles that may become permanent within the next year. As such, they are not simply “temp” jobs that are often referred to in a derogatory manner. In a USA Today article posted to their website on July 6, 2012 (http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/story/2012-07-07/temporary-hiring/56071760/1), the story is told of a health care company using staffing firms to help them fill administrative roles because of uncertainties about health insurance costs. Another story is told of technology firm using staffing companies to help them identify experts in a specific skill set needed for their business. Both illustrate the value of a partnership with a staffing firm. As you plan how to either maintain or grow your business, the lessons learned from recent jobs reports are something you too can follow. Using staffing firms, like MiSource, Inc.
