Staffing and Human Resources Consulting

Industry Outlook

The U.S. economy has been strengthening in the 10-plus years since the economic recession. Demand is growing for temporary and permanent workers, which will create good opportunities at staffing and personnel management firms. Many companies continue to turn away from the traditional employment model by adding more temporary and contract workers in order to increase competitiveness and flexibility—and to reduce their personnel expenses, including benefits, payroll taxes, and other costs associated with hiring permanent employees. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) reports that the employment services industry will have steady growth in the coming years. For example, human resources managers will have 7 percent employment growth, faster than the average for all other occupations, through 2028. And human resources specialists are expected to have 5 percent employment growth through 2028, adding about 33,000 new jobs in that time frame.
