Market volatility and its impact on staffing
from The Staffing Stream
When there is major market correction, almost everyone starts to freeze or cut spending due to uncertainty. Staffing companies may see a hiring freeze or even layoffs, as has happened already to those serving in the energy or export sectors. Until staffing company’s clients can see which way the economic winds are blowing they will defer adding costs or even cut costs. Some staffing companies may reduce their prices to avoid being left out in the cold. They may also see an increase in the number of days clients take to pay their bills, affecting cash flow. A wise staffing company will make plans in advance of these events and have contingency plans in place.
