Temporary Staffing Offers Flexibility among Business Uncertainty
Companies Turn to Contract Workers in Face of Recession Fears
Financial Times (12/21/22) Rogers, Taylor Nicole
U.S. businesses increasingly are hiring workers on temporary contracts as recession fears discourage companies from adding more permanent employees. Employers posted 26% more openings for contract roles between May and November than in the same period last year, according to data from LinkedIn. Postings for full-time jobs were up just 6% over the same period. In previous downturns, businesses have shifted open permanent jobs into temporary contracts to cut costs. The pandemic accelerated the trend. Typically contracts have been reserved for entry level jobs, but employers now are utilizing them more for higher seniority, middle manager roles.
“We are starting to see power shift back towards employers a little bit,” says the head of professional recruiting at one staffing firm. “Employers are being more conservative.”
