abacus2Despite what you see and hear from the local media, there is a talent shortage in the United States. Many companies are migrating to temporary staff vs. hiring full-time employees.

In a recent article published in Hunt Scanlon Media, projections show a clear increase in temporary labor solutions over the next few years.

If you are in a situation with more work load than staff to get that work done and you are not able to hire a team, considering contract labor can be a great solution.  Brookwoods Group provides staffing solutions to many fortune 500 companies as well as mid-sized companies in all types of industries.  We know what it takes to find the perfect person with the exact skills and, attitude and personality for every role – even temporary positions.  With our support, you’ll be able to utilize the best talent without the hassle and liability of taking on more permanent headcount, allowing your organization to remain flexible and able to adapt quick to market changes.

It is important to take a hard look at your team.  Consider their current and future workload capacity and determine if they are overworked.  Because overworked employees tend to lose focus, make more mistakes and are more likely to leave for a better offer.  And with the current national talent shortage, they could be recruited right out from under you and leave you with an even bigger gap to fill.
