Staffing Industry Analysts Names Top U.S. Finance and Accounting Temporary Staffing Firms

LOS ALTOS, Calif. – July 31, 2009 – Twelve companies generated an estimated $50 million or more of U.S. temporary staffing revenue in finance and accounting in 2008, down by a third from the prior year’s gang of eighteen. By a large margin, Robert Half leads the Finance and Accounting temporary staffing segment announced Staffing Industry Analysts. Despite lower revenue in 2008, Robert Half’s estimated market share remained at 19% as the overall segment contracted. The company generated an estimated $1.65 billion of the $8.7 billion market. These estimates of revenue exclude non-temporary staffing and revenue generated outside the U.S.

According to Tony Gregoire, Sr. Research Analyst, Staffing Industry Analysts, “The finance and accounting segment was at the heart of the credit crisis in 2008 and took some of the most severe blows. Of the five largest companies listed below, we estimate that only Robert Half generates a majority of its U.S. staffing revenue in this category.”
