2022 State of Staffing Benchmarking Report
Since 2016, Staffing Hub has released an annual State of Staffing Benchmarking Report to provide meaningful insights into the staffing industry.
I remember several years ago watching one of the reality shows about a pair of newlyweds. They were very different than my husband and I when we started out. Our lifestyles were polar opposites. They were stars, lived an extravagant lifestyle and of course had money. I thought as I watched they would have vastly different problems in their relationship and life in general. I was surprised as I tuned in week after week to see they suffered from the same “newlywed” issues that we had! How could this be? I came to the conclusion that most people probably go through all the same things, just at varying degrees.
The same rings true with staffing. Staffing is staffing. It doesn’t matter if you are staffing on the west coast, east coast or somewhere in the middle! I don’t think it matters if you are a large multi office staffing service or a small one office service. You are going to deal with some of the same issues.
Earlier this month I spent some time training a company on the East coast. As we worked through training on their staffing software I heard some of the same problems, issues, complaints and pains that I encountered when I worked in staffing. At one point we were discussing reasons people give for failing a drug test. You would think they would just fade away, but so many people want to explain why (I guess in case you change your mind?). Is there a web site out there that provides excuses for failing a drug test? How can people on opposite ends of the country both think they failed because someone put a little something extra in their spaghetti sauce?!
Here are a few other shared experiences:
So the next time you are having a tough day and struggling with an issue in your staffing company, take some comfort in knowing that somewhere out there, someone else is having the exact same staffing issue!
