Happy National Staffing Employee Week!

  • cst s4jwiaawgnd jpg large

 

 

Did you know there's an entire week dedicated to the celebrating contributions of temporary and contract employees? There is, and it's now: September 19th – 25th. Across the country, the American Staffing Association (ASA) and staffing companies like ours will be holding events and festivities especially for this important sector of the American workforce.

 

#StaffingStars

The ASA is announcing its 2017 National Staffing Employee of the Year award on September 19th. This year for the first time it will also recognize finalists in each employment sector: engineering, information technology and scientific; health care; industrial; office/clerical and administrative; and professional/managerial. We've nominated one of our own Integrity Staffing associates, who we believe is incredibly deserving of the honor. Let's see what happens!

 

Integrity Staffing will announce our own Employee of the Year on Wednesday, September 21st. It was hard to choose from so many outstanding individuals!

 

Throughout the week, you can read about more of our #StaffingStars and their inspiring personal stories on our website and Facebook page.

 

Why staffing employees rock.

Temporary and contract workers fill a vital need in today's economy, not just here in the U.S. but worldwide. The greater need for flexibility on the part of both workers and companies is driving remarkable growth. A couple of statistics:

 

Approx. 16 million temporary employees hired per year

44% increase in total staffing industry sales between 2009 and 2015

 

We believe this is not just a trend in response to the recent recession. Rather, it reflects a fundamental shift in the way people think about their lives and careers. Whether it's to acquire top level skills or stay on top of rapidly evolving markets, businesses are finding that their best option is contract workers.

 

We see this type of employment as the way towards a very bright future. And we'd like to take this opportunity to thank our associates and clients for helping us all get there together.

How to Recognize — and Fix — Low Employee Morale
We've all seen the studies on how low employee morale impacts a business, from reduced productivity to increased turnover. Granted, it's a complex problem, with some factors that cause dissatisfaction — such as the current pandemic — beyond the employer's control.   However, there are plenty of things you can do to boost positivity and mitigate negativity within the company. And many don't cost a dime.   Step 1 is reading the warning signs. Step 2 is implementing corrective action.   The sign: They call in sick a lot Whether due to physical stress or mental burnout, rising absenteeism is a serious concern. Gallup studies have shown that people with low wellbeing scores can cost a company up to $28,000 a year, compared to only $840 for happy and engaged workers.   The fix: Overwork is the number one reason for physical/mental stress-related ailments (which can range from depression and anger to cardiovascular illnesses).

How to Approach Your Boss About Work-Life Balance
Do you feel like your workload is beyond your current capabilities? You aren't the only one.   Especially in this time of COVID-19, many people need to cut back on their working hours because they have family members to care for or concerns about their own health and safety in the workplace. Or you may be in the situation of answering to a boss who expects you to work overtime every day — and you're afraid to say no because you could get laid off, or at least a bad performance review.   Life commitments outside of work — such as family, education or even just relaxing and recharging — should get their fair share of your time and energy. If you don't maintain this balance, you risk getting burned out, and then you'll be no good to either your employer or yourself.   If the time has come to bring up this tricky subject with your boss, here's how to go about it for the best chance of a satisfactory outcome.   Identify the Problem The first step to finding a solution is...
