Sparks Group Honors Contributions of Temporary and Contract Employees

2018 National Staffing Employee Week

Rockville, MD, September 24, 2018—Sparks Group, headquartered in Rockville, MD with operations throughout Maryland, Virginia, DC, and North Carolina is joining staffing and recruiting firms from across the U.S. in celebrating National Staffing Employee Week, September 24–30. Established by the American Staffing Association, this commemorative week honors the millions of temporary and contract employees working for U.S. staffing agencies each week.

According to ASA, in Maryland alone, 42,200 temporary and contract employees work in the staffing and recruiting industry every week. These positions are across a plethora of industry sectors and categories, and the majority are full-time. These jobs also can lead to permanent work, according to ASA research.

National Staffing Employee Week salutes the temporary and contract employees who contribute to the economy of Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, and that of the entire nation. From all of us at Sparks Group, we would like to sincerely thank each and every employee that represent us so well every day at our clients' worksites.
