According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 4.7 million job openings on the last business day of September 2014. With this high number of available jobs, I’m surprised to still be hearing that some organizations are struggling to find a talented workforce. My guess is that organizations are opting to directly hire employees on their payroll, in lieu of using a contract staffing agency. But did you know, an average of 18% of the workforce is contingent/contract employees? (Bond Blog & Resources)
I feel there is a strong case to be made for using a contingent/contract workforce. At Goodwill TalentBridge, we recruit and screen from a vast network to find those "right fit" individuals. We know that it's not just skills on a resume that define an ideal candidate. Rather, it is our holistic approach to talent acquisition that helps determine cultural and personality fit, a vital indicator of workplace success. By partnering with Goodwill TalentBridge, you’ll be able to spend more time on your core business and in many cases, lower your operating costs.
Our organization, Goodwill TalentBridge has grown incredibly throughout the last five years and placed over 3,000 qualified candidates in job positions—2015 looks to be even better.
