Corporate Resource Services Sees Federal Reserve Chair Yellen's Comments Pointing to Fertile Ground for Staffing
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corporate Resource Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRRS), a diversified technology, staffing, recruiting, and consulting services firm, today commented on remarks made by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen regarding the labor market. Dr. Yellen was speaking at the Kansas City Fed’s symposium at Jackson Hole, and her remarks depicted a labor market in which demand for staffing services is high.
“Demand from the service sector is high, and our clients continue to ask for specific skillsets that our recruiters are expert at identifying. We believe these trends are not just cyclical, but have become part of how businesses find qualified workers, and we expect these trends to continue.”
During her speech, Dr. Yellen spoke about not only cyclical, but structural changes to the labor force that have impacted overall employment. “Some portion of the rise in involuntary part-time work may reflect structural rather than cyclical factors,” Yellen said. “For example, the ongoing shift in employment away from goods production and toward services, a sector which historically has used a greater portion of part-time workers, may be boosting the share of part-time jobs. Likewise, the continuing decline of middle-skill jobs, some of which could be replaced by part-time jobs, may raise the share of part-time jobs in overall employment.”
“These remarks are consistent with the trends we have been tracking in the marketplace,” said John P. Messina, Chief Executive Officer of CRS. “Demand from the service sector is high, and our clients continue to ask for specific skillsets that our recruiters are expert at identifying. We believe these trends are not just cyclical, but have become part of how businesses find qualified workers, and we expect these trends to continue.”
