Canton, Ohio (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
In a notoriously tough industry, the latest Contracting Corner newsletter lays out a map to help recruiters succeed despite the uncertain economy.
Published quarterly by contract staffing back-office service Top Echelon Contracting, the Contracting Corner has been “The Perm Recruiter’s Contracting Resource” since 2006. It provides independent recruiters with news, tips, and advice to help them establish and grow their contact staffing services. In the electronic world of emailed newsletters, TEC still believes in the merit of hard copy media. The hard copy version of the newsletter is sent to over 12,000 independent recruiters.
Asking “Is Your Firm at the Mercy of the Economy?” the latest edition focuses on how recruiters can take advantage of the growth of contract staffing to drive success in all economic conditions.
“Recruiting is an industry that is often dependent on the economy, and there is limited and conflicting information that recruiters can use to plan for the future,” said Top Echelon Contracting President Debbie Fledderjohann. “If they are only doing direct hire, many recruiting niches are truly tied to the economy. Therefore, recruiting income can decrease dramatically. Contract staffing provides steady, predictable income that can sustain them regardless of what is happening on the direct hire side of their desks.”
According to CareerBuilder, 42% of companies planned to hire contractors in 2014, and contract staffing continues to grow even as traditional hiring bounces back from the recession. The newsletter discusses how this is a result of companies building blended workforce models comprised of both direct hires and contractors. It also details some of the factors that are responsible for this shift in employment. By being aware of this shift, recruiters can drive their own success regardless of what is happening in the economy. The newsletter illustrates how they can do so and how much annual recruiter income they can expect to earn from adding contract staffing to their business models.
“The best part is that, with the help of a contract staffing back-office, any recruiter can add contract staffing without any upfront financial investment, additional staff, or ramp-up time,” Fledderjohann said.
