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 Job Hunt When You're Starting from Scratch
The 2020 pandemic has wreaked havoc on careers as well as personal lives.

Meanwhile, new graduates looking for their first job have been unable to get out of the starting gate at all.   If you're in this situation, take hope. There are ways to land a job without experience in that particular field. We've rounded up expert advice to get you on the right track.   Look for careers with employee shortages   While some industry sectors have shrunk dramatically, others are experiencing a boom, and as a result, a skyrocketing need for more employees. Hiring managers are only too aware of this problem, and know that they can't stick to hard-and-fast job qualifications if they want to bring in enough new workers.   One of the biggest trends forecasted for the staffing industry...

Saying Goodbye to Your Holiday Temps? End It on a High Note
The year's peak shopping season is winding down, and temporary workers who helped companies get through the rush are coming to the end of their assignments. Smart employers will invest a little time and effort in ensuring that those workers' exit is a positive one.   Here's why:   You may want to hire those same people next year. After all, it's easier to use workers who already know your system than to train new ones from scratch. If they had a good experience with you, they'll come back rather than signing up with the competition.   Your employer brand is at stake. If unhappy temps post their opinions on site like GlassDoor, it could hurt your ability to hire quality permanent employees.   They'll refer their friends to you as possible hires. In a tight job market, this could save you significant marketing time and money.   Convinced? Then consider building these strategies into your assignment completion protocol. Integrity developed them to ensure that...

What Does Your 2021 Vision Board Look Like?
National Vision Board Day is January 9. Why not start the year with this fun and effective tool for making your goals a reality? Here's what you need to know.   What is a vision board?   It's a poster you create to express how you want your life to be — a daily reminder to visualize your ideal outcome. Having a vision board to look at will ensure that you do these short visualizations every day, and stay focused on your purpose.   The technique of visualization has been used for decades by Olympic athletes, dancers, musicians and other successful superstars such as Oprah Winfrey. Studies have shown that visualization activates the same brain patterns as the physical performance, thus developing the habits of success.   The book The Secret states that simply declaring your intentions to the universe will attract the results you desire. Whether or not that's true, a vision board is an excellent way of putting your dreams out there — and this technique has been proven...
