Books to Read.
By Mitzi Beliveau
It was not long ago when I read the book “How Far Will You Go?” second eddition by Marsha Beede. I found this book to be very informative about job recruitment agencies; A view of others and similar stories from those who fell into temp per hire recruitment agencies with plausible intentions.
Marsha took a keen interest in further research and what she uncovered were profound statistics. Marsha talks about people in the program called “The ticket back to work program.” by those who chose to participate in this program through Social Security Department. Marsha explains a little more info about how things can be a bit deceiving because who really knows how the ticket back to work really works because it can be rather confusing.
People like recruitment agencies whom at times prey on unemployed people use them because they are between jobs or desperately in need of income to survive with the promises of recruitment agencies to help you find that permanent job. People are often in limbo and are told they are only doing well to find the next day they no longer have a job. There are people looking for temporary jobs and love the hours and pay because they don’t need a steady income. For others, recruitment agencies may work for the diversity they need.
With a recruitment agency, you sign a magnitude of disclosures and disclaimers along the dotted lines while you might sit in limbo or wonder with uncertainty where the job placement may appear to lead you to believe a commitment to fulfill a contract leads to a permanent job placement.
Marsha shared a bit with me on what GDP (Gross Domestic Product) means in America and how recruitment plays a role in GDP. What you read may surprise you. But as always statistics are a revolving door. What might be statistical today may evolve into different prospects tomorrow; GDP’s may defer day-to-day.
[Currently there are nearly 8 million or more Americans out of work. Meanwhile, the staffing and recruitment agencies have been growing faster than the overall employment rates. Current statistics indicate that unemployment may drop significantly but not as one might think. Times have changed prior to past and throughout postwar era recessions when the US Department of Commerce started tracking Gross Domestic Products (GDP) in 1930’s.These unique economic shifts changes have fundamentally created a new era based on present unemployment rates and how recruitment agencies factor into future outcomes for employees.Over the course 2015, U.S. staffing agencies hired over nearly 15 million temporary and contract employees, up by nearly 8% from over 14 million in 2014.
The global staffing industry generated 428 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. In that same year, the United States’ staffing and recruiting industry sales reached 150 billion U.S. dollars, 85 percent of which was generated in the temporary and contract employment sector. In the United States, temporary and contract employment totaled 14.5 million in 2016, down from 15.6 million in 2015, the highest employment figure recorded since sporadic between 2000 and 2016, the average length of temporary and contract assignments the year 2000 while employment figures have been have generally risen over the period from 9.7 weeks in 2000 to 11.5 weeks in 2016.
Despite the U.S. holding a large share of the global staffing industry, In the year 2016 revenue estimates were quoted to 22.5 billion U.S. dollars, with the largest share of its business generated in the industrial sector. In the same year one of largest U.S. Company generated an estimate of 19.6 billion U.S. dollars in revenue placing approximately three million people into permanent, temporary and contract positions worldwide during the same year.]
