Gain in temp hours lines up with modest increase in BLS data: SIA | Bullhorn Staffing Indicator


Temporary staffing hours worked in the US rose 0.5% in the week ended Oct. 28 compared to the week before, according to the latest SIA | Bullhorn Staffing Indicator report. Professional staffing posted growth of 1.0%, while commercial staffing hours worked rose 0.4%.

The sequential gains tracked by the Indicator since the Labor Day holiday are directionally in agreement with the modest increase in temporary employment reported by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics for October (compared to September).

“While the industry continues to gradually descend from the pandemic era highs, we are cautiously hopeful that gains will continue through the coming months and this proves to be a turning point for the industry,” according to the report.
