We are constantly on the alert for all the latest industry news, legislative updates, trends and more that could possibly impact your staffing business. Our president and CEO, Julie Ann Blazei, also shares her insights on the staffing industry in her message (link below). And when we don’t see information about a topic we feel is critical for you to know, we create it ourselves to share in our monthly email.

We’re now well into 2012 — well, we’re at least past the point of accidentally writing 2011 by mistake. 2011 has come and gone, the numbers are all in, and you should now have a pretty good picture of how your staffing business weathered the year. 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.
