Temporary staffing year-over-year aggregate revenue growth accelerated slightly to 8 percent in May after slipping to 7 percent in April, according to the latest Pulse Survey update by Staffing Industry Analysts. However, the percentage of firms reporting positive year-over-year growth fell slightly to 71 percent in May from 74 percent in April.
“Overall, Pulse Survey results continue to indicate moderate growth in temp staffing, coming at an estimated 8 percent year over year in the aggregate,” said Research Analyst Robert Balicki. “The trend is clear, though — growth has slowed substantially since the post-crisis rebound.”
Month-to-month revenue trends in May showed “very widespread” improvement, an upgrade from the “widespread” improvement reported in the previous three months.
Pulse Survey results are based on a monthly survey of staffing firms. May’s survey included data submitted by individuals from 99 companies.
The full Pulse report is available to firms that take part in the survey. For more information, contact Robert Balicki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
