Staffing / temporary employment companies - additional information

Employment or recruitment agencies find candidates for client companies looking for part time or full time staff. Depending what the client company requires, the candidates are hired as either full employees of the client, or work on a temporary sub-contract basis in which they remain an employee of the agency. Staffing and recruiting industry sales in the U.S. reached 161 billion U.S. dollars in 2017. This was a recovery in sales for the staffing industry after the 2009 global recession, when sales dropped around 31 billion U.S. dollars to 80 billion U.S. dollars from the previous year.

The largest staffing agency worldwide was Adecco in 2017, which generated 26 billion U.S. dollars in revenue. Adecco is based in Switzerland and was founded in 1996. The firm has four main service lines – temporary staffing, permanent staffing, career transition service and outsourcing and talent development services. Adecco’s largest service line was temporary staffing in 2018, accounting for 87 percent of the firm’s total revenues. The remaining three service lines all made between one and ten percent.

ManpowerGroup ranked as the third largest staffing agency worldwide.
