A recent Crain’s Detroit Business article titled “Economic clouds have a silver lining for staffing firms” provides some new statistics showing what FoxHire has blogged about numerous times – that employers are hiring more contractors during the economic recovery.

According to the article, temporary/contract staffing has led all other sectors, adding 379,000 jobs since September. There has been steady growth in employment/contract staffing over the past 24 weeks, with contract staffing showing a 25% increase in July 2010 compared to July 2009.

“(Companies) don’t want to make a commitment to new fixed costs that they have to get rid of if they bet wrong … and the economy takes a double dip,” American Stafing Association President and CEO Richard Wahlquist said in the article.
