Are you using one of the most effective – and least costly – marketing tactics for your staffing company?

For most staffing companies, January 2012 started off stronger than January 2011. All indicators show the staffing industry to be fairly strong for the coming year. With spring just around the corner, now is a great time to focus on a little bit of house keeping.
