Key Findings

- For the purposes of this profile, the employment services market consists of temporary and contract staffing services. Temporary staffing is where agencies supply workers to clients on a temporary basis, the workers remaining employees of the agency. Search and placement is where agencies recruit workers on behalf of clients, with these workers going on to become employees of the client. The market value is the total turnover of agencies from the provision of these services. Services such as employee leasing and independent contracting are not included.
- The US employment services market had total revenues of $132.5bn in 2016, representing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2% between 2012 and 2016.
- Market consumption volume increased with a CAGR of 2.5% between 2012 and 2016, to reach a total of 3,190.2 thousand units in 2016.
- One of the main drivers for the contraction of the market is the increasing penetration of job posting sites that directly connect job seekers with employees so that the dispensability of recruitment services has been increased. Markedly, 22.7% of LinkedIn users are located in the US, estimated at 106 million people, indicating a high penetration of such services in staff recruiting. Furthermore, the declining volume of temporary recruitment services in the last two years as well as of the whole market in 2016, are attributable to the crisis experienced by most of the US retailers which are some of the largest buyers of such services in this market.
