Research on the temporary staffing industry discusses different topics ranging from workplace safety to the internationalization of temporary labor. However, there is a lack of data mining studies concerning this topic. This paper meets this void and uses a financial dataset as input for the estimated models. Bagged decision trees were utilized to cope with the high dimensionality. Two bagged decision trees were estimated: one using the whole dataset and one using the top 12 predictors. Both had the same predictive performance. This means we can highly reduce the computational complexity, without losing accuracy.
