Another holiday season is in full swing! Every day we work hard to find jobs for top talent across the U.S. and at the holidays this mission becomes even more important to us. Tens of thousands of temporary jobs are added to the economy during the 4th quarter and for many people, these jobs are a necessity. Holiday jobs range from retail positions to warehouse and distribution roles. For example, last year Macy’s added 83,000 temporary staffers to their team, while companies like Kohl’s and Target added 50,00 and 70,000 respectively. And last year shipping companies added a combined total of an additional 115,000 temporary workers to help deliver millions of parcels. In fact, 73 million parcels were shipped in just one day in 2013! Without the effort of all these temporary workers, the holidays would not be able to run.
To show you how the busiest time of the year creates an opportunity for important, meaningful work, we put together this short video. Watch our video now:
