Avionté RAW: Real Analytics Weekly – Week 23
Yup – huge week for staffing! Now, about half of that is a bounce back from the short Memorial week, but even if we compare week 21 to week 23, we see a 7.5% increase in hours.
The highlight was a whopping 4.0% increase in hours for the week – the second-highest increase in 2020 for any standard week! Assignments, payroll, billing, and other metrics also increased. I felt this week was significant, as the amount of COVID cases has grown dramatically, more states are increasing restrictions and the government is trying to figure out how to deal with unemployment. A 4% weekly growth, to me, shows the underlying need for an open economy.
Here’s the quick snapshot of the metrics:
It is great to see staffing firm Billing surging as well – going up by 5.9%. I also like to see that our YTD hours have come back within 10% off the start of the year.
We are tracking distinct users as a proxy to see how staffing firms are responding as it pertains to internal staff. Week 29 continued a positive trend with a large 1.9% increase. We have seen 11 straight weeks of growth, not including the short Holiday weeks, bringing the total YTD decline to 14.3%.
The state is where the work was performed (customer worksite) and we’ve only included states where we have substantial hours (> 10,000), to help display trending.
