CABIN JOHN, Maryland – January 31, 2012 – Staffing Industry Analysts reports that Mee Derby “placements increased 46 percent year over year in 2011, up from a 35 percent increase in 2010.” “In addition, the average salary for Mee Derby’s placements in the staffing industry rose 16.1 percent in 2011 on a year-over-year basis, up from a 4.7 percent increase in 2010.”
Robin Mee, Executive Recruiter and President of Mee Derby, said “a sense of urgency has returned to the hiring process for staffing professionals, and there has been more hiring of senior-level positions… More staffing firms are making investment hires – when a staffing professional is hired for the value he or she will bring to the organization regardless of whether there is an opening to fill… We are back in a talent shortage.” See the full story on SIA’s site.
