More companies using temporary help.

A survey of 150 executives of the nation's 1,000 largest companies by Accountemps found that 86% increased their use of temporary help in the last three years. Based on the responses of those who said their use of temporary help was increasing, Accountemps estimated the average increase in such use for the three-year period was 21%.

Thomas Fee, executive vicepresident and treasurer of Jefferson Pilot, a Greensboro, North Carolina, insurance company, said his company also increased its use of temporary help over the past three years. However, the real growth in temporary help at his company was not due to the need for extra help during peak periods or flu season. Rather, Jefferson Pilot has used temporaries as replacements for employees on maternity or family leave. "We must keep the spots open," said Fee, "so we find temporaries to do the work until the regular employees return."
