As 2011 winds down, it is important to take a look at 2012 and what the new year will bring. With every new year comes trends in every industry to consider. Over the past year we have seen a declining economy and thriving technology that have both affected our trends and standards for the staffing industry. Here are three staffing industry trends we will be keeping our eyes on:

1. Unemployment will remain high.

2. Demand for knowledge-based workers will increase.

3. The trend to move away from long-term employment with one company will continue.
See more about these trends and others at Staffing Talk.

While some of these will not overwhelmingly affect the IT staffing industry, it is important to understand the industry as a whole and anticipate changes that may be coming our way soon.

At IDR we are preparing for new technology trends for 2012. One of the reasons we love this industry is because of the constant adaptations. Upcoming technology trends are not just something that touch our industry but something that affect our company as well. We seek to be the best IT recruiting firm the world has ever seen. To attain this we must remain relevant, which means constantly staying on top of new and upcoming trends.

So tell us, what do you think the biggest trend for staffing in 2012 is going to be?
