Release: Local insights into June jobs report

DAYTON, OH – This morning the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics issued employment data for the month of June. BarryStaff president Doug Barry is available for interviews and to comment on the local job market in the Miami Valley.  

The U.S. economy added a significant amount of new jobs in June — more than 224,000. The national unemployment rate rose to 3.7 percent. That’s a slight increase from 3.6 percent in May. The U.S. government reported job gains in professional and business services, construction, health care and social assistance.  

“Nationally, the conversation will be about a rebound after job gains slowed in May,” said BARRYSTAFF president Doug Barry. “This is good for job seekers, but difficult for employers. We simply can’t find people to fill jobs that are being added at the companies we work with.  

“It says something that jobs are being added but the employment rate still went up,” he said.

BarryStaff is an award-winning employment agency that hires workers for more than 100 employers throughout the Miami Valley. The majority of them are in manufacturing.

Tornado Relief: BARRYSTAFF opens its doors to small businesses

DAYTON, OH – BARRYSTAFF announced on Monday that it will open its doors to any small business owners or entrepreneurs in need of a facility to work from in the aftermath of the Memorial Day tornadoes.

Business owners and their employees will have access to shelter, free parking, WiFi, bathrooms and a break area.

They’re even invited to park and leave company vehicles in the BARRYSTAFF lot, where more than 100 parking spaces are available.

Space for all the above will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

“Small business owners have each other’s backs,” said BARRYSTAFF president Doug Barry. “What’s ours is yours.”

Thirteen tornadoes ravaged the Miami Valley on Memorial Day, impacting thousands and reducing areas to disaster zones. BARRYSTAFF, located at 230 Webster Street in Downtown Dayton, was without power for three days following the storms.

“That was hard enough,” Barry said. “But others weren’t so lucky. Some don’t have a structure at all.” BARRYSTAFF’s business hours are 8am and 4:30pm. If business owners would like to utilize BARRYSTAFF’s space, the company can be contacted at (937) 461-9732.

BARRYSTAFF announces new hours

DAYTON, OH – Starting this week BARRYSTAFF will be open on Saturdays in order to accommodate job seekers with busy schedules during the week.

The office, located at 230 Webster Street in Dayton, will be open from 9am to 1pm.

Additionally, the company’s Springfield location will stay open an additional three hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That location, located at 1992 N. Bechtle Ave., will close at 8pm on those days.

“We realize folks folks have busy lives and can be tied up throughout the day,” said BARRYSTAFF president Doug Barry. “Now job seekers in Dayton and Springfield will have more time to get to our offices and get the ball rolling on finding a new job.”

BARRYSTAFF works with over 100 different companies throughout the Miami Valley. The majority of them are manufacturing companies. Barry said the growing demand for workers is the driving force behind the decision to extend hours.

Jobs are temp-to-hire. After 90 days employees become permanent workers at the companies in which they’re placed. They typically enjoy a salary bump and full benefits at that time.

“Some people may be wondering if the grass is really greener over at BARRYSTAFF,” Barry said. “We believe it is. It never hurts to talk.”
BARRYSTAFF was founded in 1980. Its Dayton location can be reached at (937) 461-9732.

The company opened its Bechtle location in 2014. The manager of the Springfield location is Pam Bartee. The office can be contacted at (937) 327-0025. 

BARRYSTAFF also has an office in Piqua. The number is (937) 381-0058.

BARRYSTAFF president says economy booming, and workers harder than ever to find

DAYTON, OH – This morning the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics issued employment data for the month of April.

The national unemployment rate was announced as 3.6 percent. The U.S. government reported job gains in professional and business services, construction, health care and social assistance.

The unemployment rate of 3.6 percent was the lowest since 1969.

The number of long-term unemployed (people without a job for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 1.2 million in April. This made up 21 percent of the unemployed.

“These days companies find themselves looking in new places for employees,” Barry said. “For example, it was unheard of a few years ago for manufacturing companies to search online for candidates. But competition for workers is stiff.”

Manufacturing employment changed little for the third month in a row (+4,000). In the 12 months prior to February, the industry had added an average of 22,000 jobs per month.

BarryStaff is an award-winning employment agency that hires workers for more than 100 employers throughout the Miami Valley. The majority of them are in manufacturing.
