While some human resource experts remain skeptical about reports of improvements in the job market, a growing number of our clients are optimistic about the many apparent signs of a hiring rebound. Businesses are adding staff as they have a need and we’re getting a lot more employer calls than we did six months ago. Confidence is higher and we are hearing more chatter about budgets for 2011 that will include new positions.
Now that a more sustainable recovery seems under way, there is positive movement toward employing more temporary help. The fourth quarter is usually a slow time for recruiters but it appears as if there is definitely going to be more part-time and temporary activity this November and December, as firms make decisions to start adding full-time employees again early next year.
When looking ahead to your staffing needs, keep us in mind. As personnel generalists we recruit and interview for a wide range of employment opportunities in nearly all business sectors. The Specialists Group can provide ready access to individuals who have been screened for background, prior job performance, job-related skills and personal factors.
