Acara makes SIA’s 2016 list of largest US staffing firms

Moving up one spot from last year, Acara has been named the 35th largest staffing firm by Staffing Industry Analysts on their list of 2016 Largest Staffing Firms with revenues over $100 million in the United States.

The 2016 report states that revenue estimates reflect “staffing revenue” defined as revenue related to temporary staffing, direct hire, retained search, and temp-to-hire conversion fees.

“The companies featured on this year’s report combined to generate $75.7 billion in US staffing revenue last year,” said Timothy Landhuis, research manager at Staffing Industry Analysts. “This marked a solid increase from the $69.4 billion of 2014 revenue featured in last year’s report, and provides evidence of overall growth in staffing revenue among large firms.”

This list can be used to gain a “big picture” reading of the U.S. staffing industry landscape. Notably, industrial and IT skills represented the largest temporary staffing skill segments by revenue for the majority of the companies.
