How to hold on to top talent
The Staffing Stream
In today’s competitive job market, job seekers have the upper hand as companies scramble to find and retain top talent. In fact, according to Addison Group, a leading staffing and recruiting firm, while only 16 percent of workers are actively looking for a new job, almost half keep their resumes up to date, even when steadily employed. In essence, they are available as highly attractive, passive job seekers. Moreover, nearly a third of workers admit to passively browsing for new opportunities and admit they are open to interviewing for a different role.

Are your staffing costs being properly tracked?
The Staffing Stream
Nearly 60 percent of all contingent labor is unaccounted for in financial planning, forecasting and budgeting within the average company, according to a new report by CPO Rising. Put another (and equally disturbing) way, $6 out of every $10 spent on temps, SOWs, freelancers and/or independent contractors is being invested almost blindly. Limited oversight. Limited control. Limited planning. It's not surprising then that one of the top challenges for businesses in 2015 is getting visibility into their contingent workforce.
