Superior Group Appears in Two of Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2017 Lists of Largest Global Staffing Firms

Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) released its 2017 List of Largest Global Staffing Firms, wherein Superior Group ranked under “Largest Global Staffing Firms” and “Largest Global Engineering Firms.”

Superior climbed five spots to #85 on the List of Largest Global Staffing Firms.

The 100 organizations on the list of the world’s largest Staffing & Recruitment Firms have a combined revenue of $190 billion, based on sales generated in 2016.

SIA defines “staffing” revenue as revenue generated from the provision of temporary workers to business clients, as well as from “place & search” services (direct hire/permanent placement and retained search).

Superior also finished 20th on the Largest Global Engineering Firms list. This list estimates the global engineering temporary staffing revenue market in 2016 to be worth $28.3 billion. Added together, the top 20 firms generated $9.9 billion in revenue, accounting for 35% of the market.

SIA defines “engineering” temporary staffing as the furnishing of temporary workers in engineering occupations. Examples include mechanical, civil, electrical, industrial, petroleum, environmental, process and other engineers (but not software engineers which fall into what we define as our information technology IT segment).

Overall, both of SIA’s lists can be used to get a “big picture” reading of both the global staffing and global engineering temporary staffing industry landscape.
