Debunking staffing industry myths
The Staffing Stream
Temporary or project-based jobs are playing an increasingly important role in the continued economic recovery. According to CareerBuilder’s annual jobs forecast report, temporary employment is expected to pick up over the next 12 months as employers struggle to fill in-demand roles and strive to maintain more flexibility in their workforce. Forty-six percent of employers plan to hire temporary or contract workers in 2015, up from 42 percent last year. Kineticom Inc. believes the contractor and project-based workforce is nearing historic highs as well. This labor force is on the rise for a reason and is a viable and fruitful option for many. But the workforce still battles many myths, instability likely the most common.

Video, mobile, social media all essential when recruiting today's talent
Bloomberg BNA
Recruiters today must strengthen their brand and use video, social media and mobile-friendly websites, Meghan M. Biro, founder and CEO of the blog TalentCulture.com, said in a March 25 webinar sponsored by Waltham, Mass.-based human capital management software company PeopleFluent. Top job candidates today expect leading employers to be recruiting using multiple platforms, Biro said. “Essentially, you are how you search.” Video job postings show up much higher in job search results on Google, for example, whereas “static” text-only job postings and descriptions don’t show what’s unique about the company and makes it a good place to work, she added.
