So why use a Staffing Agency?
Many companies utilize temporary staffing agencies for a wide variety of reasons. Whether they need assistance with short-term projects or the hiring process for direct hires, staffing companies can help find qualified candidates that fit specific job requirements.
Extra hands: sometimes companies are working on big projects or have an extra workload for only a short amount of time. They don’t need to hire and train full-time employees, but they do need some extra hands at work. Staffing agencies can send over workers to help out part-time or short-term, while needed.
Trial run: creating a new position or having a difficult time finding the right fit for your company? When you work with a staffing agency, you can test out employees before committing to a permanent position. When they work in a temp-to-hire role, there’s a trial period to make sure it’s going to work out for both of you.
Easier hiring process: when you utilize an agency, they have a pool of candidates to select from or they post job ads and do the job search for you. Recruiting agents will interview, screen, and test potential employees, which saves your company from needing to take the time and resources to do it themselves. A job posting can bring in hundreds of applications so working with a temp staffing company can be extremely helpful!
Savings: when a worker is employed through an agency, the agency handles the payroll as well as workers comp, insurance, benefits, and unemployment. This can add up to a lot of time and cost savings. Some smaller companies may choose to use temp companies completely so they can save on these costs entirely.
Flexibility: with a qualified pool of candidates at their disposal, temp agencies are wonderful when you’re in a bind. Whether you’ve lost an employee temporarily for personal reasons or illness or you’re suddenly overloaded with work, an agency can likely get someone sent over right away to help. They have lists of people who are ready to be on-call, available for all shifts, and looking for full- or part-time hours.
