Staffing Agencies Bump Up Internal Staff

Many staffing companies are adding to their internal staffs to meet increased demand from clients seeking to hire, according to a recent article that appeared in Crain’s Cleveland Business.

The trend seen in Northeast Ohio has also been reflected nationwide, according to the article. In the U.S., the number of people employed through temporary help services totaled about 2.2 million last month, up 9 percent from May 2010 and more than 26 percent from May 2009, according to data from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“As businesses feel more confident, they begin to shift their requests to us for permanent hires,” Aaron Grossman, president of Alliance Staffing Solutions in Independence, said in a press release. “That’s what we’re seeing now, and the volume of work has increased so much for us that we’ve expanded our own staffing levels.”
