IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New York, NY (October 22, 2012) New book, The Temp Factor: The Complete Guide to Temporary Employment for Staffing Services, Clients and Temps by Cathy A. Reilly is now available through Universal Publishers. This comprehensive guidebook provides readers with key information about the three-sides of this working arrangement: the staffing service, the temps and the client companies who hire them. Each of these business partners is directly linked and vital to the other in order to compete, deliver, and succeed.
The word “temporary” can be a bit deceptive. This industry is substantial. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) labels it a “super sector” and reports revenue in 2011 at $98.3 billion.
Today’s temporary staff wear a whole new look that includes scientists, doctors, nurses, graphic designers, technology pro’s, lawyers, ex-military, and C-Suite executives. Ongoing staffing challenges face modern organizations of every size that include rising caution to manage costs and respond to market changes with immediacy. The solution for many: turn to a more flexible and cost effective workforce . . . temps.
With temporary employment looking like a permanent trend as millions of temps arrive through company doors each business day, a guidebook providing insight from a staffing industry client’s point of view is well-timed.
The Temp Factor reveals how to go from simple to savvy in temporary employment, how to implement techniques that create a new level of business intelligence in temporary employment, and reset the bar on excellence. As a seasoned end-user of this industry, the author has been on the frontlines seeing what works, what doesn’t work, and where there are many missed opportunities that exist under this business partnership to capitalize on.
Reilly explains, “There’s no escaping the direct relationship between staffing services, temps, and client companies who hire them. Possessing a deeper cross-section of knowledge about each member of this working arrangement is not only beneficial; it’s a true distinguisher and the way to excel in this field.”
