Staffing industry revenue trends were mixed in August, but are still an improvement over the marked deceleration that took place in May and June, according to Staffing Industry Analysts’ latest Pulse Survey update. The update includes information from 196 staffing firms.
“This month’s pulse survey came in flat. Estimated aggregate year-over-year revenue growth in total temp staffing was unchanged, at 13 percent. Good news in some areas was matched by bad news elsewhere,” said Research Analyst Robert Balicki.
“Office/clerical staffing had a particularly good month, with estimated year-over-year aggregate revenue growth rising to 11 percent in August from 7 percent in July,” Balicki said.
Month-over-month revenue trends moved to “very widespread improvement” from simply “widespread” improvement in July.
On the negative side, the net proportion of firms reporting new orders fell to 34 percent, the lowest on record.
