Bullhorn, the global leader in recruiting software, today announced the release of its annual North American Staffing and Recruiting Trends Report, “A Numbers Game,” which found 77% of staffing firms met or exceeded their goals for 2013, compared to 73% in 2012. The report also found that 88% of respondents think their firm’s revenue performance will increase in 2014, but this is down from 92% in 2013 and 96% in 2012.
Based on a survey of more than 1,300 recruiting agency professionals and comprised of performance benchmarks, metrics, and real revenue and salary figures, “A Numbers Game” analyzes industry insights by firm size, recruitment type, title, and more. Download the full report for free here.
2013 was by almost all accounts a very good year for the staffing and recruiting industry. Overall revenue as well as total number of placements – the most important metric for firms across the board – increased over the past year. However, there are signs of a slowdown for 2014. Agencies are more conservative about their growth plans, and some firms are overly reliant on a single large client for revenue.
