What's affecting a staffing buyer's decision?
The Staffing Stream
Purchasing behavior has certainly become more complex. True, some of the ways a buyer evaluates your firm have stayed the same. Things like reputation, value and customer service have influenced purchasing decisions for decades – and will continue to do so. In recent years, however, rapid advancements in technology, increasing candidate shortages and more strategic applications of staffing have made the process of selecting an agency more convoluted than ever. So, how do today’s decision-makers choose their staffing suppliers? What makes them loyal – and what causes them to search out new partners?

The gig economy won't last because it's being sued to death
Fast Company
In a certain light, the gig economy looks like a dream; after all, full-time employment has been falling for years. Between 1995 and 2005, when the government kept data on what it calls "contingent workers," about 30 percent of the labor force fell into this non-full-time-employment category. In 2009, employment law firm Littler Mendelson estimated that about half of the jobs added after the recession will be contingent, making the workforce 35 percent freelance, temp, and part-time workers. A year later, Intuit estimated that it will be more like 40 percent. Meanwhile, the United States has a record number of 2.87 million temp workers, who arguably occupy the bleakest corner of the contingent worker universe. The social contract between gig economy workers and employers is broken. Who will fix it, and how, will determine the fate of thousands of workers and hundreds of millions of dollars.

How to hire a great staffer
Staffing Talk
Staffers spend the bulk of their working day trying to find that perfect fit for each and every client. In fact, one of the things that makes our business particularly difficult is the fact that a staffer must match candidates to not one, but several, uniquely different clients, all while keeping both sets of customers (clients and job seekers) happy. And yet, when it comes to actually hiring our internal staffers, time after time staffing agencies fail to apply the very same principles their staffers are expected to use to satisfy clients. Since the wrong hire can destroy business, devastate relationships, and generally wreck a previously successful staffing office, it is of paramount importance to make the RIGHT hire, every time.

Remote work on the rise, Accountemps survey finds
Staffing Industry Analysts

Larger companies outpace smaller firms in telecommuting; 68 percent of CFOs at companies with more than 1,000 employees see remote work opportunities on the rise compared to 34 percent of CFOs at companies with 20 to 49 employees.

The next frontier in talent acquisition is marketing
ERE
In the next two to five years, the top employers of choice will be the organizations that consistently communicate an authentic employer brand story and value proposition that wins the attention of highly specialized talent and compels them to follow, engage and ultimately join (and stay) on their teams. To tell the right story and deliver on their employer brand promise, chief human resources officers and talent acquisition leaders must evolve their recruitment marketing strategy with a tighter focus on building longer-term relationships with the right candidates.

Are you truly giving candidates a great experience?
Recruiter
Candidate experience matters: a bad one can damage a company’s brand and profit margins alike. In 2012, CareerBuilder reported that 78 percent of candidates who had a bad experience with an employer would share that experience with friends and family; 32 percent of candidates would be less likely to purchase products from companies that gave them poor candidate experiences.
