Removing the repetitive
The Staffing Stream
The staffing and recruitment industry remains stuck in a past with a reputation that is often no better than that of used car salesmen, attorneys, and politicians. While it’s easy to blame this on the minority of people who are operating with poor ethical standards, the real problem is how we do business day to day. The methods and practices that perpetuate a poor reputation and the perception of being a commodity, are called Repetitive Practices. Companies that have eliminated these Repetitive Practices are achieving higher revenues, increased profit margins, lower labor intensity, elimination of commoditized buying, and improved visibility and standing in the eyes of Empowered Buyers.

Beige Book reports broad-based increase in staffing demand
Staffing Industry Analysts
Employment gains were widespread across reporting Federal Reserve districts in October and November, according to the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book report released Wednesday. Several districts noted an increase in temporary staffing as well as an increase in temporary-to-permanent job transitions. With labor market conditions strengthening, firms in the Kansas City and Dallas districts had increased difficulty retaining key workers. Various districts continued to report that firms had difficulties filling positions in IT and engineering, legal and healthcare services, management, skilled manufacturing and building trades, and transportation and warehousing. Most districts reported little change in holiday-related hiring relative to last year, although there were some reports of slightly higher rates of seasonal hiring in New York and Chicago.

How employers can prepare for the freelance work revolution
Recruiter
We live in an age where great businesses can be born and die overnight, in a manner of speaking. This is why modern businesses and corporations must be flexible, adaptable, and responsive: so they can handle any problem or exploit any opportunity that comes their way. One way that organizations are starting to build adaptability is by moving from a fixed-labor model to a contingent-labor model, where they depend on freelancers, casuals, temps, etc.
