Bringing a new employee aboard can be both time consuming and expensive, especially amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. Bringing the wrong employee aboard may cost you even more and the ripple effect of a poor hire can be disastrous for your organization.
If you’re looking to save time and money, working with a staffing firm may be the missing piece. Here, we will explore a few of the many the benefits of choosing a staffing firm as your workforce partner.
We understand that flexibility is important in your hiring process – especially with the current inconsistencies in the economy. Partnering with a staffing company delivers flexibility in matching payrolls to your revenue alleviating labor concerns during this economic uncertainty. Should a temporary employee be unable to fulfill all the duties of the position, you have no obligation to continue to employ that individual.
Not only does your organization need flexibility in this time of economic insecurity but also when managing unexpected or temporary demands. A staffing partner can provide your organization with candidates for COVID-19 related projects, seasonal or peak workflow, or when you have vacancies and absences, such as vacations, disability leaves, or sudden departures.
Working with a staffing firm allows you to reduce payroll, benefits, and personnel administrative costs. With your staffing partner as the employer of record, they are responsible for all state and federal employment taxes and workers’ compensation. The value of having a blended workforce of traditional employees and temporary associates allows you to better control costs, which is vital in today’s economy.
IDENTIFYING QUALIFIED EMPLOYEES
Partnering with a staffing firm will allow you to audition potential full-time employees and keep them on your staffing partner’s payroll until you are certain the employee meets the demands of your position. This also allows you to leverage the flexibility of engaging talent without the financial commitment to full-time regular employees.
During this time of uncertainty, many companies are searching for creative ways to cut payroll costs while still meeting their business requirements. Working with a staffing firm may be just what you were looking for. Next Gear Staffing takes the time to help you set realistic expectations about the current labor market, salaries, and more.
