It’s an understatement to say that 2020 has been a year of dramatic volatility in the labor market—but that hasn’t stopped Express Employment Professionals from racking up impressive wins as a top staffing franchise. We are proud to share that we were ranked #41 on the Franchise Times Top 200 for 2020. And our reputation keeps growing, as we were recently named #2 on the Largest Industrial Staffing Firms List in the U.S. in 2020 by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA)–an impressive ranking for a franchise in this sector.
Cornering The Market On Staffing
Express has been ranked in the top 5 by SIA for industrial staffing since 2007. Founded in 1989, SIA is a global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions whose proprietary research covers all categories of employed and non-employed work, including temporary staffing, independent contracting and other types of contingent labor. What makes our #2 ranking an even bigger deal is that we’re a franchise, whereas the majority of companies on the list are corporations. It’s proof that our Express franchise model, exceptional leadership and outstanding support for our Franchise Owners keep us ahead of the competition regardless of market conditions. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a snapshot of the biggest players in the staffing industry.
Why Industry Insiders Are Optimistic About Staffing
According to SIA President Barry Asin, “The 175 companies in the report represent 63.5% of the market for a combined revenue of $97 billion and indicates an industry well-positioned to weather the impact of the pandemic.“ And furthermore, he believes that “As the U.S. navigates and recovers from the current disruption, many organizations will look to utilize temporary and interim workers to meet shifting demand and maintain an active and agile workforce”.1 Temporary and contract staffing is big business, and surge staffing in the healthcare, warehouse and delivery industries comprise a big chunk of this year’s demand. Express Employment Professionals accounts for 8% of the staffing market share, accounting for $2.7M of industrial temporary staffing revenue in 2019.
Express Staffing Franchises Lead The Way In Uncertain Times
In a recent press release, Express CEO Bill Stoller said, “Express continues to gain market share overall as we near our 40th anniversary connecting businesses and job seekers. We are pleased to be recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts for our efforts in providing exemplary employment services that are so critical to the nation’s workforce.”
Why You Should Explore The Top Franchise To Own
According to iFranchise Group CEO Mark Siebert, demand is only going to go up. “Franchise companies better be prepared for the coming boom in franchise sales, or they are likely going to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Siebert said. “We are already seeing an increase in interest from those looking to buy their own franchises and are expecting that this will materialize as a tidal wave of franchise sales by 2021.”
Franchise Owner Kim Guard couldn’t agree more. With her background as an executive in the staffing industry, she had deep knowledge of the market and was eager to put her talent to work to help her community. Of her decision to become an Express Franchise Owner, she said, “I spent my career in staffing, and I was so motivated by the idea of owning the business. I never looked back.”
