Within the last few weeks I’ve been hearing many encouraging things from our staffing software clients along the lines of growth, increased revenue, expansion and acquisitions. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard our clients sounding so optimistic. One client, a large independent based in Indiana even went so far as to tell me they just had their BEST quarter. Not the best since the economy started to tank, but the best quarter in the last 20+ years in business! Wow – and congratulations! I’m not sure many staffing firms can make a claim as significant as that yet, but the gloom and doom certainly seems to be lifting and the air is being filled with much more positive and optimistic feelings. As far as I can tell, one thing each of these companies has in common is a solid foundation, clearly defined processes and a plan for how they will approach the economic recovery.
