Staffing was particularly strong in industries such as: engineering/manufacturing, sales/marketing, information technology, healthcare and HR/legal/recruiting. In 2014, contract staffing will continue to become a more long-term business strategy in all industries – but especially in healthcare, IT and manufacturing/engineering.
