Personnel Services: A Global Outlook

Follow us on LinkedIn – The personnel services, also referred as Human Resources, are expected to be one of the fast paced industries, creating a sizable chunk of employments. From the position of providing primarily clerical employments, the personnel employment agencies evolved to offer millions of permanent and temporary jobs, in a wide range of industries, ranging from the manufacturing worker to the chief executive jobs. The global personnel services industry continues to cope with increasingly complex challenges emerging due to rapid liberalization and globalization of economies across the world in addition to sluggish market demand.

Basic demographic, economic and social trends generate unique issues that add to the plethora of challenges in this industry. Therefore, the staffing industry is highly competitive, exhibiting varied trends in the global marketplace, such as increasing demand for skilled personnel and consolidation among customers in the industry. Owing to the uncertain state of the economy, organizations are being more cautious and selective in their hiring activity and are choosing temporary workers over permanent full-time staff. Firms are also increasingly outsourcing various HR functions including payroll, employee management, employee benefits processing, and employee recruitment to service providers that streamline business processes, and offer integrated performance benefits. Europe of late has emerged as the leading region for recruit process outsourcing.

Employment services are among the most adversely affected markets on account of the recent economic crisis. Since cost cutting measures by organizations also included bypassing employment agencies to conduct direct recruitment process, revenues of employment service companies declined drastically across most of the developed countries. Even in developing countries, the rate of new job creation slowed down from the robust rates in the preceding years. Worldwide employment services market is highly competitive and extremely fragmented. The fragmented nature of the industry creates a situation wherein entry barriers are minimal. Liberalization of world economies and entry of multinational companies has paved the path for increased competition in different regional markets.
