Beige book: Staffing services increase, workers harder to find
from Staffing Industry Analysts
Staffing services increased in many reporting Federal Reserve districts, according to the Federal Reserve's Beige Book report. However, most districts had some employers reporting difficulty finding qualified workers for certain positions. Staffing services increased in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Richmond, Chicago and Dallas. Philadelphia indicated staffing requests increased for both temporary and permanent positions, while a staffing firm in the Chicago district reported strong orders but noted improving labor market conditions resulted in increased difficulties in finding qualified workers.
