As we head into the future , a lot of changes are taking place – especially surrounding healthcare and compliance. These new and complex laws are changing the way that employers hire. Many believe that temporary jobs are on the rise because 1099 employees and temporary workers do not require much of what W2 employees require from a compliance and recordkeeping standpoint.
Staffing also permits businesses to hire on help during their peak periods and cut back on spending when business is slow – so long as the temporary help is reliable and gets the job done, it’s the perfect setup.
In July 2013 employment for temporary help services was 2.7 million – up 170,000 from the year before and almost a million higher than 2009, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
