U.S. staffing industry revenue will rise by 6 percent in 2013 following forecast growth of 9 percent in 2012 and 12 percent in 2011, Staffing Industry Analysts President Barry Asin reported today in a keynote speech at the Staffing Industry Executive Forum in Las Vegas.
One of the fastest-growing segments of staffing will be information technology, which is set to see revenue rise by 12 percent in 2013 following growth of 14 percent in 2012 and 15 percent in 2011.
The preliminary numbers are from Staffing Industry Analysts’ industry forecast, to be released shortly.
The numbers represent an upgrade in growth from the prior forecast, and the announcement was part of a kick-off to the forum.
Asin also outlined trends in staffing from the rise of total talent management to the increasingly complex legal environment.
This year’s Executive Forum officially got rolling today with more than 850 attendees at the Red Rock Resort Casino in Las Vegas.
Among the events on Thursday, author Chester Elton will make a keynote speech, focusing on material from his latest book: “The Orange Revolution.”

The Staffing Industry Executive Forum runs through Friday.
