Staffing Industry Pulse Survey

The Pulse survey is our monthly snapshot of the U.S. staffing industry by staffing sector and temp help segment. It's a quick survey to complete (about 10-15 minutes), is completely anonymous, and in exchange for providing data you receive timely revenue, acquisition, and benchmarking trends of the industry in a ~25 page report.

We collect previous month's data starting at the beginning of each month and release it by the end of the current month (i.e. March data is collected throughout April and released at the end of April). The monthly Pulse survey is free to all participants, but only those who participate receive the report.

Staffing Industry Benchmarking Consortium

The Staffing Industry Benchmarking Consortium (SIBC) is managed by Staffing Industry Analysts, and consists of a group of staffing companies -- large and small, privately-held and publicly-traded -- who confidentially provide Staffing Industry Analysts with their company's financial and operating data so that they, in turn can access aggregated benchmarking data. It is specifically designed for staffing firm CEOs, owners, CFOs, board members, and other senior executives who want an ongoing, timely scorecard on how their specific company's financial and business performance compares to similar staffing companies.

The SIBC survey is implemented twice a year. Participation is open to corporate members only, at no additional charge. Please contact if you would like more information about SIBC.

The current round of SIBC is now open for participation. If you are a corporate member and would like to participate, or would like to become a corporate member, please contact
