This week’s edition of the SIA | Bullhorn Staffing Indicator has revealed a decrease in hours worked in the US staffing industry in the week ending April 8th compared to the same week a year ago. Commercial staffing hours were down -18% and professional staffing hours were down -8%. On a sequential basis, temporary staffing hours worked were down -3.0% due to the impact of the Good Friday and Easter Holidays. Data from the Indicator is weighted and benchmarked against US Bureau of Labor Statistics data to approximate the composition of the staffing industry by skill. SIA projects a modest decline in commercial staffing and mixed trends in professional staffing for the 2023 year. For further information on how the Indicator has been created and technical notes members of SIA should refer to the methodology.
