Staffing is immune to many of the challenges that other industries face. Even in times of uncertainty, companies are always hiring—and job seekers are always looking for work. By forming long-term partnerships with staffing companies, employers can adjust their workforce in times of both growth and recession, scaling it up or down or employing a heavier mix of temporary employees.
Be part of a growing industry.
Since 1995, the staffing industry has grown by 78%—and that’s not changing any time soon. Currently, the staffing industry’s annual revenue is $95 billion, and the employment services industry is projected to grow two-thirds faster than overall employment, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. So you could say that now is a great time to get into staffing.
Successful companies require qualified talent.
Growth is the life bread of successful companies. Growing and maintaining a workforce to support the demands of an organization is critical to success. Whether it’s a growing company looking to build out a brand-new department or a retailer who needs to scale up employees during the holidays or back-to-school, aligning yourself with successful companies will facilitate the demand for qualified local talent.
A familiar business
You already have experience.
Staffing differs from other possible franchise industries in that we all have at least a passing familiarity with it. We’ve all been hired, worked with a recruiter, or done the hiring for a company. That experience means that staffing presents less of a learning curve for new owners than franchises in other industries would.
Protect your work-life balance.
With staffing, you work when other companies work—and that means regular business hours in most cases. That offers you greater personal flexibility; you have the freedom to spend nights and weekends with friends and family—instead of clocking in to keep tabs on your franchise.
