PSG President Aaron Green was honored to participate in a panel discussion on gender pay equity at the recent New Hampshire Women’s Leadership Summit, held annually and sponsored by the New England Women’s Leadership Institute (NEWLI).
The panel discussed the gap in pay between women’s and men’s salaries, which nationally is 88 cents for women vs. $1 for men and in New Hampshire is 78 cents per dollar. Panel members discussed efforts to equalize pay, including the challenges facing organizations, leadership competencies necessary for enacting change, and encouraging women to ask for raises more often and to ask for larger raises. (Women typically ask for raises one-quarter as often as men do and typically ask for 30 percent less money in their raise.)
The New England Women’s Leadership Institute (NEWLI)’s mission is to educate professional women in the areas of Leadership, Vision and Values. Each year NEWLI hosts the Women’s Leadership Summit to raise awareness of the personal and professional capacities and skills needed by women to advance in the competitive and changing world of the 21st century. This regional event is aimed at women in both personal and professional growth and in optimizing heir career choices now and in the future.
Along with PSG’s Aaron Green, other members of the CEO panel included: Gary Chynoweth of Dyn, Inc.; Tiffany Eddy of FocusFirst Communications; Carl Famiglietti of Moody, Famiglietti & Andronico; and Tom Raffio of Northeast Delta Dental.

This month’s issue of Workforce magazine includes a special report on the staffing industry. PSG’s President Aaron Green spoke with Workforce for the article, lending his perspective to the drivers behind the temporary staffing industry’s growth.
Some notable points from the article:
- Temporary hires have consistently increased for more than 40 months since the end of the Great Recession, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
- As evidenced by the consistently increasing penetration rate of temporary workers in the total workforce, there are more temps in the workplace these days. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found that temporary jobs in the U.S. increased by 13,100 to 2.7 million in August.
- Compared to the early ‘90s, more employers have learned how to use the staffing industry to meet labor demand when they’re unsure about hiring full-time workers during periods of economic uncertainty
- “Temp-to-hire” is one of the quickest-growing areas of staffing business
