Generation X …

The 51 million members of Generation X, born between 1965 and 1976 tend to be a transient workforce, averaging a three- to five-year life span in any one organization. Gen X-ers are technologically savvy, pragmatic and competent; they are efficient at managing themselves to get the job done. They tend to be free agents apt at learning on the fly.

Many believe family time is so important that they often put work/life balance over the traditional job and career advancement. This means our Associate Program is an ideal alternative to the regular 9 to ??.

LinkedIn?

Gen Y? …

Generation Y, those born between 1977 and 1995 are 79.5 million strong. They are very entrepreneurial, team oriented; technologically very sound and will be the highest performing workforce in the history of the world.

They will make great associates because they are very connected to their families, friends, their communities, co-workers and are looking for opportunities other than the status qua.

Who do you know in this demographic group that you can show the Associate Program to once we launch?

Logo Finalized …





When I asked our graphics artist to share with us his rationale behind the StaffingForce logo that he design, this is what he said.

“Going for maximum impact this proud human capital resource organization chose design elements working together in a systemic fashion, to convey a clear, crisp and simplistic message. The company colors are sported prominently in both image and text, ingeniously delivering completion and brevity.

The imagery is inspired and interwoven. Interpretative license is given to the viewer to conjure: a solid, dimensional, interlock design object is chosen, not prescriptive but inviting onlookers to read meaning into it. Spanning breadth and depth, scouring the globe for talent, going to the ends of the known reality to find you the specialized staffing you need”.


It is wonderful design and one that captures the global unity that is at the core of our business model.

Baby Boomers Will Make Great StaffingForce Associates …

A recent study reports that traditional retirement may be gone forever. According to this report, many Baby Boomers are putting off retiring, choosing instead to stay in the workforce and pursue other opportunities.

The demand for skilled labor has never been higher. In this study, 58 percent of their recruiters report an increase in the number of experienced executives changing professions. Companies facing shrinking labor pools, due to the reduced number of folks in Generation X and lack of training during the economic slowdown should be increasingly concerned about the large numbers of older workers now reaching the typical retirement age.

The good news is most Baby Boomers simply don’t want to retire, at least not in the traditional sense. They are much more interested in re-careering.

Here’s why:

  • 22 percent are bored with the mere thought of retirement. They don’t want to sit on front porch in the rocking chair and wait for the grim reaper.
  • 21 percent have a need to be productive. Their parents taught them, "You must be a contributing member of society."
  • 20 percent reported needing to have an intellectual challenge.
  • 13 percent have insufficient savings. We actually expected this figure to be much higher, many are reluctant to admit their poor financial judgment or perhaps it is because this study focuses on executives who planned their financial futures more carefully.
  • 13 percent find they need the personal interaction.

Re-careering executives are choosing entrepreneurship, consulting, volunteering, or some combination of pursuits. "While this (shift) won't cure the impending talent crunch, it will provide more opportunity for younger executives to learn from Baby Boomers before they retire completely".

The Baby Boomers will make great StaffingForce Associates. Who do you know in this demographic group that you can show the Associate Program to?

Fragmentation Across the Nation …

Today’s staffing industry consists of approximately 50,000 staffing firms, an estimated 60% of which are independent recruiters, sole practitioners and niche market specialists employing less than 4 recruiters, on average.

Our business model offers a better opportunity for those that work for others in the industry. Independence and a commission structure that grows exponentially and provides the opportunity to earn more than what one can individually produce.

Years of growth ahead of us in Staffing Industry ...

Data released recently by the American Staffing Association shows that the U.S. staffing industry is growing faster than the economy because of flexibility: workers want it, businesses need it and it's good for the economy.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment services industry, which is primarily staffing, will grow at an average annual rate of 3.8 percent from 2004 to 2014, adding nearly 1.6 million new jobs.

Last year, U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.9 million temporary and contract workers per day, according to the ASA quarterly employment and sales survey. During the next decade, the U.S. staffing industry will grow faster and add more jobs than any other industry, according to the BLS.

Global Market Size of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Marketplace ...

Rapid transformation is taking place in the global BPO market. It is accompanied by increased spending in BPO services. Most of the leading business companies of the world are adopting BPO as a strategic business solution. The BPO industry is very diverse, with several sub-segments, each displaying its own unique characteristics. According to Gartner, a market research firm, the size of the global BPO market by 2007 would be $173bn, of which $24.23bn would be outsourced to offshore contractors. Of this, India has the potential to generate $13.8bn in revenue. "The projection includes revenues of pure play Indian BPO service providers, captives operations of MNCs operating in India, third party service providers and BPO subsidiaries of IT services firms. North America will remain the dominant market for ITES-BPO services, accounting for nearly 60 percent of the total ITES-BPO market in 2006.

The main verticals in the North American ITES-BPO market are telecommunications, financial services, health care and energy. Commonly outsourced processes include internal auditing, payroll, human resources, benefits management, contact centers/customer care, payments/ claims processing, real estate management, and supply chain management.The Western Europe ITES-BPO market is expected to account for 22 percent of the market by 2006. The financial services sector is the largest consumer of BPO-ITES services in Europe, followed by utilities and telecommunications. Human resources, finance and accounting are expected to be the fastest growing service lines.

The Asia Pacific ITES-BPO market is expected to account for 18 percent of the total ITESBPO market in 2006. Companies in the Asia-Pacific region have traditionally outsourced only manufacturing activities. Given the relative infancy of the ITES-BPO market, this region is expected to experience rapid growth over the next few years. Growth will primarily be driven by cost-reduction and the need to focus on core competencies. HR, finance and accounting are expected to be the key growth areas in the Asia-Pacific region in the years ahead.

We will be offering services in this sector through our ApexUNI .....

Staffing Employment in Detail …

The umbrella employment services category (NAICS 561300, which combines temporary help, professional employer organizations and employment placement agencies) dropped by 27,000 employees, or 0.7%, in April from March, seasonally adjusted. The workforce stood at 3.6 million down 42,700 from April 2006.The number of workers in employment placement agencies (NAICS 561310, not seasonally adjusted) rose by 5,600 (or 1.9%) in March from February and was 21,100 or 7.4% higher than March 2006. Employment at temporary help services (NAICS 561320) dropped 6,200 in April from the previous month to 2.6 million. Since April 2007, temporary help services had slipped by 10,000 (or 0.4%).

Payrolls at professional employer organizations (NAICS 561330) rose by 12,400 or 1.8%, in March from February (not seasonally adjusted) to 688,600, but the category has lost 23,400 workers (or 3.3%) since March 2006. In the human resources consulting service category, which includes executive search services (NAICS 541612), employment rose by 2,600 in March from February to 114,600 (not seasonally adjusted). Employment in this sector is up 2.0% since March 2006.

Keep in mind those workers in employment placement agencies (NAICS 561310) will be ideal Associates, since they will be able to earn so much more that they do for their current employer and have the freedom of working for themselves - but NOT BY THEMSELVES.

Who do you know in this industry that may be interested in our business model once we launch??? Make a list!
