Growth assessment report outlines current state of play in global engineering market

To start planning for the future, engineering staffing executives might consider asking three fundamental questions: Do I have the right business models in place? How can my company develop new capabilities and in what areas? How should asset portfolios evolve?

Given the dynamic pace of change in the industry, solving these challenges could easily spell the difference between success or failure. A new report from Staffing Industry Analysts helps to provide answers to those three fundamental questions.
