Temporary staffing year-over-year aggregate revenue growth remained strong in December, despite a slowdown to 10 percent from 14 percent between October and December, according to the latest Pulse Survey Report by Staffing Industry Analysts. The percentage of firms reporting positive year-over-year growth edged down to 76 percent from 79 percent.
“The Pulse Survey results confirm that the temporary staffing sector ended 2013 on a strong note, with double-digit year-over-year December revenue growth reported in a number of segments,” said Research Associate Ziv Tepman.
Information technology staffing year-over-year growth has continued its acceleration since August, and allied health continued rebounding from the muted year-over-year growth seen in September, according to the report. Direct hire year-over-year growth decelerated to its 2013 low.
This month’s Pulse Survey Report includes new features such as:
- Data on bill rate trends
- Data split by U.S. regions
- New easy-to-read tables with a snapshot of year-over-year and month-over-month revenue growth for the most recent month
Pulse Survey results are based on a monthly survey of staffing firms. January’s survey included data submitted by individuals from 97 staffing companies.
