Direct Hire services in the current economic scenario

Direct Hire Services is now driving the employment sector with various employment services being provided under its umbrella for the past few decades. The current economic outlook has prompted an increased and renewed interest in the establishment of staffing franchisee opportunities from business entrepreneurs. Previous records do show that employers are heavily dependent on the direct hire services during the period of economic recovery because of their flexibility.

The revenues from the direct hire services is expected to expand by at least ten percent in this year and in addition a recent study carried on by Career Builder found that more than twenty percent of employers plan to hire more contract or temporary workers during 2012 and this is an increase of about twelve percent compared with during 2011. Some staffing firms are engaged in announcing franchise partnerships and opening up of staffing offices globally. These staffing firms help their franchisees with providing back office services, infrastructure, recruiting services, market support and payroll funding so that their partners can directly focus on client related activities.

The direct hire services is more required in the field of Information Technology where the budget constraints are making it especially hard for small and medium-sized companies to hire full-time IT staff even though they have some projects on hand to be completed. That is why these organizations are turning to temporary and contract workers to fill the gap. The contract workers are required for a specific length of time to complete certain projects such as installing and integrating new servers.  Recent reports show that the trend for hiring temporary and contract workers would continue as uncertainty about global economic economy continues.

The service industry in the United States that includes staffing firms expanded in the month of July at a faster pace than a month earlier due to resurgence in the pick up orders. The employment gauge decreased to 49.3 percent, the first reduction in the measure of jobs this year from 52.3 percent in June. The survey was carried out under the Institute of Supply Management – non-manufacturing survey. The ISM survey covers a broad mix of industries that includes retailing, health care and finance.
