Employment agency in Pocatello seeing massive increase in job placement

Pocatello, ID, Thursday, May 27, 2021— Gem State Staffing based in Pocatello is under new Management and excited to be able to offer a number of new positions to our current demographic. Gem State Staffing has hired James Baxter as the new Branch Manager and Colin Wolf as the Assistant Manager for the Pocatello location. Both gentlemen bring a combined 40 years of experience to the staffing industry supporting the local economy.

In Idaho alone, thousands of temporary and contract employees work in the staffing and recruiting industry every week. These positions are across industry sectors and professions, and the majority are full-time. These jobs also can lead to permanent work, according to American Staffing Association research.

We are growing at a very rapid pace and are in a great spot to put people to work immediately.  The latest news is that multiple states are beginning to eliminate unemployment benefits in order to help people return to work and support businesses and their employees. Many employers are struggling to attract employees to apply with state and federal unemployment benefits at a record high. Gem State Staffing in Pocatello has become a top go-to source for businesses to provide for their staffing needs at a cost saving measure.

Following the near record highs posted in 2019, full-year 2020 data released today by the American Staffing Association show how the coronavirus pandemic challenged providers of workforce solutions, with temporary and contract staffing jobs falling to Great Recession levels.

Staffing employment plummeted by 33.6%—more than one million jobs—as the nation was shut down by the Covid-19 pandemic.

During the third quarter, staffing companies played an essential role in getting people safely back to work, the staffing industry is uniquely positioned to continue providing opportunities to those who have been furloughed or laid off during the pandemic, aiding the recovery of overall employment in the United States.

Since joining Gem State Staffing the new management team have increased employee hiring by 35% and negotiated competitive wages aiming for employee satisfaction. “Many local employers have turned to us to provide for their staffing needs due to our extensive pool of qualified candidates” stated James Baxter. “If a business is in need, we have the resources to supply staff to them within days” according to Baxter. He also stated the benefits for employers to use a staffing agency are covering workers compensation, payroll administration, all pre-screening requirements, unemployment costs, all at no risk of exposure to businesses.

Gem State Staffing salutes the temporary and contract employees who contribute to the economy of Idaho and that of the entire nation,” said James Baxter Branch Manager with Gem State Staffing. Gem State Staffing is proud to be part of an industry that provides jobs to employees and flexible workforce solutions to businesses and contributes to the economy.”
