While the most common type is free online courses, offered by 36%, some firms are taking a more proactive approach. 22% actively provide in-house training and 27% offer both client specific courses and pre-screening for training programs.
What kind of training are staffing firms providing? Health and safety is by far the most popular, with 31% of staffing firms training their temps in the field. Following that, 20% offer client specific training and 19% offer courses in computers, software, MS Office, and technology.
Industrial staffing firms are particularly active in the training field, with 78% of them providing training to their temporary workers.
