2024 Staffing Industry Outlook

As we look forward into 2024, we understand the importance of staying ahead in the ever-evolving staffing landscape. Drawing on the American Staffing Association’s Staffing Outlook for 2024, we’re sharing a few of the top trends shaping the industry this year that may impact workforce management efforts.

Navigating Labor Supply Imbalances

  • As we saw in 2023, there is a consistent decrease in available job seekers in the market. Hiring based on skills and abilities – versus traditional metrics like education – can help tap into new talent pools, while also creating a more diverse workforce.

Prioritizing the Employee Experience (EX)

  • From providing work flexibility to ensuring a positive company culture and environment, focusing on EX will not only attract, but retain, top talent as we experience a national labor shortage.

Prepare a Future-Ready Workforce

  • With the rapid pace of technological advancements, upskilling and reskilling have become imperative. We’re here to support your workforce development initiatives, providing access to training programs and learning opportunities for your team.
