@Work Group Addresses Job Market Predictions

National staffing franchise optimistic about temporary employment industry.

February 13, 2014 // Franchising.com // Knoxville, TN - Even as overall unemployment rates remain high, @Work Group, a top U.S. multi-specialty staffing franchisor, is enthusiastic about the growing staffing industry and the future of the overall job market.

"We are seeing a huge increase in several sectors," said Jason Leverant, chief operating officer for @Work Group. "Our franchises provide staffing for personnel, medical, healthcare, and other services, and with the Affordable Care Act, immigration reform, and other legislation making companies hesitant to hire on a permanent basis, the time is right for temporary workers."

Temporary work was up about 10 percent in December 2013 over the same time the previous year, adding about 40,000 jobs. A survey last year by the American Staffing Association found that U.S. staffing agenciesemploy nearly three million temporary and contract workers per day.

@Work Group saw a 27 percent year-over-year growth at its 50 franchises nationwide last year. As more workers leave the permanent workforce and face the prospect of long-term unemployment, the agency is poising itself to step in and continue to offer viable options for workers in all its sectors.

"We know so many people are concerned with the job market, and President Barack Obama continues to make new policies in an effort to improve the situation," said Leverant. "We want to make sure people know that we are there to help them in times of unstable work conditions, and that our industry is growing even as others struggle to stay afloat."
