Businesses, according to ASA, tap staffing companies for quality talent in virtually all occupational sectors, from call center service representatives to skilled tradesmen to attorneys. ASA also reports that 79% of temporary and contract employees work full-time (35 hours or more per week), virtually the same as the rest of the work force.
“National Staffing Employee Week is a salute to the important and talented temporary and contract employees who actively contribute to the growth and maintenance of our economy,” said Miriam Dushane, Branch Manager of Linium’s staffing division.
For those who are seeking their first job, re-entering the work force, or looking for something new, temporary and contract employment offers many benefits:
