Executive temping is a popular option for companies as executive hiring in general appears to be heading toward a surge, according to a recent article by Human Resource Executive Online.
Per the article, ExecuNet's Recruiter Confidence Index reported that 66 percent of executive recruiters are "confident" or "very confident" that executive hiring will increase over the next six months as 20 percent of companies say they plan to create new positions. Manufacturing and Information Technology, which happen to be two of the hottest areas for contract staffing, are among the industries that are already actively seeking executive talent.
As companies seek to find the right staff for their C-suites, many are trying out potential candidates on a contract-to-direct basis or using contractors to fill in while they find the right person. The retiree re-staffing trend that we have previously reported on has also bolstered executive temping. So if you are seeking new direct or contract job orders, you may want to fill your pipeline of candidates with some superstar executives!
