US Staffing Industry Pulse Survey

The US Pulse provides a snapshot of revenue and operating trends in the US temporary staffing industry by skill sector, as well as for direct hire and retained search. It’s a quick survey to complete (about 10-15 minutes), individual company data is kept confidential, and in exchange for participation, your staffing firm will receive the complete 25+ page report with insights on revenue trends, order trends, bill rate trends, recruiting/sales difficulty, and future outlook.

The US Pulse Survey is currently conducted every other month.

Note: While we publish a short Selected Highlights version of the Pulse Report for our corporate members, the full Pulse Report is shared only with US staffing firms that fill out a survey.

Global Talent Platform Survey

This survey is open to talent platform companies only and provides valuable insights into this rapidly evolving group of technology companies that enable hirers to find and engage independent workers, typically through a digital marketplace, to complete various types of work. Primarily of a contingent nature, work can be completed remotely or onsite.

Staffing Platform as a Service Survey

Staffing Platforms as a Service (SPaaS) vendors provide “out of the box” online and mobile app-based solutions tailored for the staffing industry in order to facilitate the provision of automated/online functionality of the processes traditionally conducted by staffing firms offline. Among other things, the software enables clients and candidates to self-serve with no, or very little, human mediation. If you provide services in this business category, we invite you to participate in our annual survey. By completing our survey, you will benefit from brand exposure among SIAs global members.

Front Office Landscape Survey

This survey is restricted to vendors of front office solutions for staffing firms. Participation in this survey provides an invaluable profile for your business among SIA’s global staffing firm members and an in-depth understanding of this crucial software landscape. All vendors of full-suite front office systems are invited to participate as well as those providing more modular products. SIA defines the front office as comprising a customer relationship management module (CRM), a candidate management system or applicant tracking system (ATS) and a requisition order assignment module (ROA). In addition, workforce management as well as time and attendance collection are often included in the front office.
