Temporary hiring gains more steam
PROTECH was featured in the South Florida Business Journal’s article about “Temporary hiring gains more steam.”
Business is picking up at Protech, a technical staffing firm in Boca Raton, CEO Deborah Vazquez said. Protech’s revenue grew 19 percent, year-over-year, during the first nine months of 2010. And, revenue during the third quarter grew 33 percent, she said.
“I can tell you that our industry is back to prosperity,” she said.
Top-level programmers remained in demand through the recession, but demand for project managers and business analysts is starting to pick up, a sign that businesses will likely begin hiring other tech workers, Vazquez added.
In addition to the temp staffers Protech supplies, direct hires are also starting to pick up, she noted.
Ramping up on tech staffers
One of the companies Protech has supplied with temporary workers is Miami-based Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL). Chief Information Officer Bill Martin said his IT department has ramped up on temp staffers. The department currently has slightly less than 400 permanent employees and “well over 100” temp staffers, he said.
