The Top Contract Placement Industries for 2017

Okay, I’ll cut right to the chase. If you’re not making contract placements, you need to start. A recession is going to hit the economy. It could be in 2018 or 2019, but it doesn’t matter. It’s going to happen eventually, and you need to be ready.

When there’s a recession, employers stop hiring direct and they start hiring on contract instead. If your clients asked for contract clients, what would you do? Would you be able to help them?

Top Echelon Contracting has helped recruiters offer contract staffing to their clients for over 25 years. And this week in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, we’re presenting the top contract placement industries for 2017.

Contract placement industries: 100% transparent

As you can see at the top of this blog post, there is a graphical representation of the top contract placement industries. However, I’m going to list them below, as well. (The percentages indicate the percentage of deals they represented in regards to TEC’s placements overall.)

  • Healthcare—25%
  • Finance & Accounting—18%
  • Information Technology—16%
  • HR/Recruiting—14%
  • Engineering/Manufacturing—12%
  • Business Professionals—7%
  • Sales & Marketing—4%
  • Insurance—4%

I’m sure that a few of you added up the numbers. They do equal 100%. But thank you for double-checking my work.

If you work within any of the above industries, then you should be offering contract staffing services to your clients. All you have to do is provide contract candidates and place them. The process is the same as it is with direct hire placements.

As for the recruitment back office? You outsource that to us! WE will handle the legal, financial, and administrative details associated with the placement. You collect the placement checks.

And as you might (or might not) know, we’re now offering another level of service. This level, called TEC Express, is designed for contractors who are “office professionals” and would qualify for the Workers Compensation Code 8810 (or equivalent). Since the new Express service level is targeting only office professionals, we can pass more profit along to the recruiter. Express is also designed to streamline the placement process.
