  • GDP revised upward

    US real gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 1.2% in the first quarter, according to the second estimate of GDP growth released today by the US Commerce Department.The new estimate is up from an “advance” estimate that pegged growth at just 0.7%.In the fourth quarter of 2016, real GDP increased 2.1%.MarketWatch reported the first-quarter slowdown was largely the result of a temporary pullback in consumer spending and the production of business inventories. However, both look to be stronger now.“While business investment is likely to make a smaller contribution to growth in the second quarter, we still expect GDP growth to be between 2.5% and 3%,” Michael Pearce of Capital Economics wrote in a note to clients.

  • Temp agency front for $22 million billing scheme

    The Orange County, Calif., District Attorney charged four family members and two medical doctors with medical insurance fraud in a $22 million urine test billing scheme operated through a temporary staffing agency and sober living homes.The family — Pamela, Philip and William Ganong; and Susan Stinson — is accused of starting Compass Rose Staffing in January 2013 as a front to overbill insurance companies for the collection and testing of urine.The District Attorney alleges the family members owned sober living homes in Orange County, Bakersfield, Los Angeles, and San Diego, through their business William Mae Company, which operated as Compass Rose Recovery. The family fraudulently listed residents and non-residents of Compass as employees of Compass Rose Staffing, and required daily or frequent urine drug testing as a term and condition of employment, according to the DA. The defendants also formed a medical testing lab called Ghostline Labs.Between 2012 and 2014, the Ganongs are accused of registering fraudulent employees on all four of their payrolls — William Mae Company, Compass Rose Recovery, Compass Rose Staffing and Ghostline Labs — and submitting daily or frequent urine drug test samples for each employee under each company’s health insurance plan.The Ganongs are accused of paying minimal compensation to those enrolled as employees, not collecting co-pays or deductibles for the urine tests, and providing free rent as a kickback for submitting the urine samples.To further the scheme, the Ganongs allegedly hired two medical doctors — defendants Carlos Montano, M.D., of Newport Beach, Calif.; and Suzie Schuder, M.D., of Corona Del Mar, Calif. — who are accused of writing urine drug prescriptions starting at three times per week and increasing to seven times per week for most of the Ganongs’ employees.The defendants are accused of changing insurance carriers four times to avoid detection, billing approximately $22 million to the four insurance companies, and subsequently collecting $15 million.Maximum sentences for the defendants range from three years in state prison for Susan Stinson to 47 years and eight months in state prison for Pamela Ganong.

  • Toronto is Canada’s fastest-growing metro economy

    Toronto will post the strongest GDP growth this year, 2.6%, among the 13 major metropolitan areas covered by The Conference Board of Canada’s Metropolitan Outlook: Spring 2017. Employment growth in Toronto is expected to reach 1.9% this year, well above the 1% national average. The robust job market conditions will continue to act as a magnet to newcomers — the metropolitan area’s population is expected to grow by 1.8% or 112,000 people this year."Although economic growth is forecast to ease in 2017, Toronto will still be the metropolitan growth leader in Canada this year,” said Alan Arcand, associate director, Centre for Municipal Studies, The Conference Board of Canada.Vancouver will come in second place, as a cooling housing market limits its GDP growth to a still-strong 2.4%. Employment growth is forecast to slow dramatically to about 14,000 new jobs in Vancouver this year after a record 61,000 jobs added in 2016.Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon and Regina will enjoy renewed growth this year, after suffering economic contractions in 2016.Click on chart to larg […]

  • UK – Deliveroo accused of running campaign of misinformation

    During a tribunal this week over workers’ rights, Deliveroo, the food delivery firm, has been accused of engaging in misinformation and changing contract rules at the last minute to weaken its riders’ case, according to the Guardian. Deliveroo tried to have the case dismissed on the basis that not enough riders in certain areas expressed interest in joining the International Workers Union of Great Britain, citing figures for members who signed up. The IWGB disputed Deliveroo’s figures and stated that it was running a ‘campaign of misinformation.’During the hearing, it was discovered that Deliveroo had recently made a series of changes to its contracts, including removing performance monitoring and a requirement for riders to wear its branded clothing. Both these factors are seen as central to differentiating between workers, who are service providers closely controlled by an employer, and self-employed contractors. […]

  • Netherlands – European Commission calls on government to tackle rising number of freelancers

    The European Commission is urging the Dutch government to tackle the surge in people working as freelancers, reports Dutchnews.nl.In its recommendations, the Commission said that the government should tackle remaining barriers to hiring staff on permanent contracts and address the high increase in self employment.

  • China – Average salary set to rise by 8% in 2017

    The average salary in China is expected to increase by 8% this year, according to data from ZW HR Consulting, a Chinese recruitment firm. The 8% increase excludes promotions and varies by industry.Meanwhile, employees with specific in-demand skill sets and experience could see up to a 25% increase in salary. Candidates who have English and Mandarin language skills are in higher demand and can expect salary hikes of up to 15% – 25%.“There is a positive outlook on hiring by Chinese companies in 2017,” Frank Yu, Chairman of ZW HR Consulting, said. “We expect many companies will offer wage increases to retain and attract employees as the employee turnover rate remains high”.Meanwhile, employees who switch positions are set to see a salary increase of between 8% to 15%.Among the professions, salaries for accounting and finance recruitment professionals will remain steady across all sectors thus, hiring for accounting, finance and banking professionals will remain comparatively stable. Meanwhile, IT, Sales & Marketing professionals could see a 10-12% increase in their salaries. Demand will be particularly high for specialists, mobile engineers and software developers.Engineering candidates in Research & Development positions and bilinguals who have proficiency in English communications, and business and project management skills, work experience and education in overseas should expect 20% to 30% increases in salary.“I often hear candidates saying that salary is no longer the most important factor that would convince them to join any organization,” Joyce Jing, General Manager for ZW HR Consulting said. “Employees in China are looking forward to new and innovative benefits, career development, training instead of merely salary hikes. Candidates with international exposure, good language skills, market knowledge and who are well-disciplined will continue to receive multiple offers, as well as counter offers from their current employer”.ZW HR states that China will also focus on the improvement of economic benefits. On this basis, ZW HR anticipates that the employment market in 2017 will continue to maintain steady development. […]

  • China – College graduates face challenging labour market and declining salaries

    Zhaopin Limited, a Chinese career platform, released a report on its 2017 career survey of college graduates in China. The report found that college graduates are facing a more challenging labour market, and declining average monthly salaries.According to the report, China will have a record of 7.95 million graduating students joining the labour force this year.The China Institute for Employment Research (CIER) index compiled by Zhaopin and Renmin University, which tracks the ratio of job vacancies to job seekers in a variety of industries and cities across the country, rose to 1.91 in the first quarter of 2017, from 1.71 during the same period of 2016. The rising index is an indication the labour market had improved with the economy as was reported in April. However, Zhaopin states that not all parts of the labour market are strengthening and the record size of this year's graduating class is posing unique challenges for graduates.Zhaopin’s survey showed that 40.8% of graduates believed the labour market was very challenging this year, up from 36.5% last year. Meanwhile, 26.7% of college graduates had signed employment contracts this year, down from 35.4% last year.The average monthly salary for college graduates declined by 16% this year to RMB 4,014 (USD 585.3). The IT/telecom/electronics/internet sector offered the highest monthly salary which was followed by the financial sector the traffic/transportation/logistics/warehousing sector.Meanwhile, Zhaopin’s report also showed that it was more difficult to get interview opportunities this year. 31.9% of college graduates got 1 to 3 interviews, and 27.1% had 4 to 5 interviews. About 8.3% of graduates did not get any interviews this year, up from 3% last year.By the end of April this year, 27.7% of college graduates still had not received any job offers, higher than the 24.8% seen last year. Meanwhile, 50.2% of graduates got 1 to 3 job offers, lower than the 55.4% last year. For graduates who had job offers but declined to sign contracts, the top reason was "salary/welfare did not meet expectation.”Zhaopin conducted its 2017 survey of college graduates to analyse their employability, based on their perceptions of the labour market, job-hunting efforts and results. More than 93,000 college graduates participated in the survey this year. […]

  • Singapore – Businesses adopting blind recruitment to eliminate unconscious bias and improve diversity

    Many organisations in Singapore are adopting blind recruitment techniques in an effort to help eliminate unconscious bias, according to international recruitment firm Hays.Blind recruitment involves omitting personally identifiable information, such as name, gender, age and education, from applicant CVs. The aim is to overcome unconscious bias during the recruitment process, which can be counterproductive to a strategy to improve workplace diversity.“Everyone has unconscious bias,” Yvonne Smyth, Head of Diversity at Hays, said. “When it comes to any kind of selection at key points in careers, which could be recruitment, promotion, being put forward for a new project, even giving feedback, this can influence the shape of someone’s career and the opportunities they have.“The Blind recruitment technique can help organisations ensure a diverse flow of talent into their selection process,” Lynne Roeder, Managing Director of Hays in Singapore, said. “It can also boost your employment brand since jobseekers say they have the opportunity to better position their strengths in an interview.”Lynne stated that if organisations are to maximise the benefits of a blind recruitment strategy, managers need to be aware of their own unconscious biases and, through training, learn to recognise and better manage them at key points of judgement and selection.“Generally speaking, making CVs more blind than they currently are is a good thing because it does help mitigate bias” Smyth said. “However, blind recruitment is not a silver bullet, neither absolutely right nor absolutely wrong. It is a tool that you can use to create a level playing field, so use it, but use it with caution.&rdquo […]

  • Global Staffing Forecast May 2017

    Key Findings:2016 staffing revenue by geography and sector (pages 2-10): We estimate that in 2016, the staffing industry generated 428 billion US dollars (USD) of revenue worldwide (386 billion Euro). Three countries (US, Japan, UK) made up a majority of revenue. Of all staffing revenue generated in 2016 worldwide, we estimate 89% was via the temporary staffing model with the remaining 11% from place & search. A majority of temporary staffing revenue was from commercial jobs, though there are markets where professional jobs made up a majority, such as the US. 2013-2016 growth in staffing revenue (page 11) From 2013 to 2016, the order of the largest seven markets has not changed. China has moved from twelfth to eighth as its economy has surged. Canada and Brazil fell from the top 10, partly due to a drop in oil prices over that period. Staffing market estimates and projections through 2018 (pages 12-16): SIA projects that global staffing revenue will grow 3% this year to reach USD 441 billion and 5% in 2018 to reach USD 464 billion. In terms of Euro, we project 7% growth this year to EUR 413 billion and 5% in 2018 to EUR 435 billion. The percentage growth projected for 2017 is different when based in Euro, compared to growth based in US dollars, as our 2017 projections are affected by year-to-date currency trends. Our 2018 projection has been estimated on a constant currency basis. As the staffing industry is highly cyclical, the moderate growth of 5% we project for the staffing market next year reflects an outlook of moderate growth in the global economy. In its April 2017 World Economic Outlook, the IMF projected real, global GDP growth to accelerate from 3.1% in 2016 to 3.5% and 3.6% in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Though GDP is a major driver of staffing performance, it is not the only factor. For instance, several European markets, especially Italy (where the regulatory climate has become more favorable), are projected to grow robustly despite a mild (in some cases weak) economic backdrop.
