SURVEY REPORTS STATE COMPANIES FINDING PERMANENT SOLUTIONS
IN USE OF TEMPORARY HELP
NEW YORK, Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In a survey of 1,000 companies being undertaken by members of the New York Association of Temporary Help Services (NYATS), 61 percent of respondents said they are planning to increase the use of temporary help before hiring back permanent employees.
NYATS Executive Director Shirley Laufer said that "flexible hiring practices are definitely playing a positive role in the sluggish recovery.
"There's no doubt that companies are finding some relief through the creative use of temporary personnel," said Laufer. "Creative staffing translates into lower overhead and helps companies to compensate for the slowdown," she said.
The companies, the majority of which had annual revenues of more than $50 million, also cited short-term staffing for traditional peak holiday periods as another reason for the increase.
