According to a new report from Staffing Industry Analysts, global staffing is expected to expand by 9% this year, after an increase of 21% in 2021.
SIA reports, “Three countries — the US, Japan, and the UK — comprise the majority of the revenue, while the top 15 countries combined accounted for 88% of total global staffing revenue. Eighty-six percent of that revenue consisted of temporary staffing and the remainder by place and search.”
Some contributors regarding unemployment and retention as a result of COVID-19:
- Skills shortages
- Supply chain disruption
Why is global staffing expected to expand significantly despite COVID-19 factors?
- Adaptable management should be able to acknowledge changing values of customers, employees, and investors.
- Employees want to work with companies that have similar personal values.
- Employees want to feel like more than a workforce; they want to feel like partners to their company.
- Improving engagement through health and wellness campaigns that foster employee well-being.
