JSG Named to Three of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Lists

JSG Named to Three of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Lists

For the sixth consecutive year, Johnson Service Group has been named to three of Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) lists. This year, these lists include: 

  • Largest Staffing Firms in the U.S. (62nd) 
  • Largest Engineering Staffing Firms in the U.S. (13th) 
  • Largest Staffing Firms in Canada (15th) 

This is a notable achievement for our company and speaks to our consistency over the years. “I commend each and every one of our employees for their dedication and hard work,” said Dale Slater, Founder and CEO of JSG. 

Although this award reflects revenues from last year, making this list during this economically and socially challenging year is an honor for all of us at Johnson Service Group. “We thank you all for your continued efforts and wish all of our JSG family health, happiness, safety, and success… now and in the future,” says Ken Slater, Executive Vice President of JSG. 

What are the SIA lists?

Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) is the global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions. This year’s report for the Largest Staffing Firms in the United States features 175 staffing companies; that is an increase from the 157 firms included last year. To make the list, each firm must generate at least $100 million in revenue in 2019. 

“The 175 companies in this year’s report represent 63.5% of the market and with a combined revenue of $97 billion indicate an industry well-positioned to weather the impact of the pandemic,” said Barry Asin, SIA President. “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.” Moreover, the additional 18 firms making SIA’s list this year illustrates the growth of the staffing industry. 

The JSG difference

JSG continues to work diligently to offer our clients and candidates world-class service and diversified offerings to fit their evolving needs. Which is why we have recently expanded our consulting services to include information technology consulting in addition to our wide array of staffing services. “Our main goal is to be able to continue efficiently aligning our strengths with our clients’ needs. Our staff will continue to provide exceptional service with a strong sense of urgency, attention to detail, and follow-through,” says Ken Slater. 

The entire JSG team works diligently to maintain our present position as the most effective cross-industry staffing solution available. We work hard, we work together, and we work for you.

Happy Holidays From All Of Us At JSG!

2020 has been a challenging year for most of us, which makes this season feel a little extra special this year. The best part of the holidays is remembering those who make them meaningful. To celebrate, we had our employees throughout North America share how they’re getting in the holiday spirit. Please join us in cherishing this time with one another and relishing in gratitude for the relationships we’ve established and grown throughout 2020.

Planning a wedding during the pandemic hasn’t been easy, but plans are finally starting to come together for my fiancé and I to get married in March! We’re sending a Christmas card to let all of our friends and family know that the wedding is still on, but the list is going to be a lot smaller than we thought.

Our 1-year-old channeled his inner “Christmas Vacation” by dressing up as Uncle Eddie!


 

 

 

 

Here’s a picture of my tree and baby. She was caught mid-yawn, thought it was perfect!

 

This is my favorite part of my Holiday decorations (and also my occasional Teams Video backdrop)! Happy Holidays!


 

My cat admiring Christmas tree lights for the first time ❤ it’s her first Christmas!


Christmas time is a very special time of the year filled with many blessings.

Our team in Jacksonville would like to share the beautiful tree in our lobby we get to enjoy every day!

It has been an unusual year to say the least, but all of us are very blessed!  We are all coming together to do a Christmas Drive for Wolfson Children’s Hospital in downtown Jacksonville.

Wolfson Hospital is in great need to help the infants who can not be home for Christmas!  So the team is buying gifts for the little ones, and next week Operations will deliver them.

We can already see all their smiling faces. 😊 It is always nice to be able to give back to the community.

From our office to yours we wish everyone at JSG a  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


My wife decided to make a Christmas blanket for our one-year-old niece. Her first attempt turned out to be a dog scarf for Penny. Happy Pawlidays!


 

 

We are so blessed to be spending the holidays in our new home. While this is the boys’ second Christmas, it is their first time seeing all the Christmas decorations.

Ruger and Remington love to watch the lights and check out the ornaments. All four dogs have been very good girls and boys, so we are all excited to see what Santa brings them.

Merry Christmas,

The Rudders

Laura, Josh, Reya, Ruger, Remington, and Ruby


 

Shelby and Lolli are patiently waiting to bark at Santa and of course some new toys to tear up!


 

 

 

A shout out to wish everyone a wonderful safe holiday. May 2021 bring you and your loved ones many blessings.


 

 Interesting that his hat said naughty on one side and nice on the other and he totally chose nice all by himself…..

Thank you to all of our wonderful clients for partnering with us to help hardworking job seekers find new opportunities this year.

From all of us at JSG, have a healthy, safe, and prosperous Holiday season!

September 2020 Jobs Report

September 2020 Jobs Report: the U.S. Gains 661,000 Payrolls

The Labor Department reported that nonfarm payrolls rose by 661,000. That is the fewest gains since May and much lower than economists’ expectations of around 850,000 payrolls. Regardless of expectations, the unemployment rate continued to decline from 8.4% to 7.9%. Although slower than predicted, the U.S. economy is still on the path of recovery, even as COVID-19 cases continue to surge. Here is an overview of the September 2020 Jobs Report.

September Jobs Report overview

Despite all odds, employers around the nation are continuing to add jobs, although at a slower rate in the last three months. Hiring started to cool in July, with the growth of nearly 2 million positions. There are still roughly 10.7 million Americans out of work than before the pandemic hit in February. However, we have made huge strides over the last seven months when employment fell by more than 22 million, and the unemployment rate hit an all-time high of 14.7%. Fast forward to today, the unemployment rate is sitting at 7.9%, and has been consistently declining since April. Moreover, the number of unemployed Americans declined by 1.0 million to 12.6 million unemployed persons.

The labor force participation rate slightly declined by 0.3%, to 61.4%, which is 2% lower than it was back in February. Additionally, average hourly earnings bumped up 4.8%, to $29.47.

The impact of the coronavirus

As the country continues its battle with the coronavirus, the labor market outlook is a little precarious, despite consistent growth over the summer. Last month, the U.S. surpassed 200,000 deaths from the coronavirus pandemic, and this morning, it was confirmed President Trump tested positive for the virus. This is the final jobs report before the November election. Hopefully, our battle with the virus continues to trend in the right direction, and more employers can create jobs.

Job gains by industry

The industries with the largest employment growth are leisure and hospitality (+318,000), retail trade (+142,000), healthcare and social assistance (+108,000), professional and business services (+89,000), transportation and warehousing (+74,000), manufacturing (+66,000), financial activities (+37,000), information (+27,000), construction (+27,000), wholesale trade (+19,000), and mining (+1,000). Government payroll declined by 216,000 and private education fell by 69,000.

Revisions from the previous jobs report

Over the last two months, total nonfarm payroll employment gains were revised. In July, payrolls were revised up by 27,000, from +1,734,000 to +1,761,000, and in August, payrolls were revised up by 118,000, from +1,371,000 to 1,489,000. With revisions over the last two months combined, employment was 145,000 more than previously reported.

Are you ready to harvest more jobs this fall?

More employers are gaining confidence in the labor market and jumpstarting their hiring efforts. Plus, seasonal hiring is about to be kicked into high gear as employers will go on a hiring spree to keep up with seasonal demand this fall. If your team is ready to revive your hiring efforts, JSG is here to help. We have a solid grasp on the market and a strong pipeline of candidates that are ready to work. Reach out to us today, and let’s work together to fill your job vacancies.
