Employers: This Is Why You Should Use a Staffing Agency
Human resource departments and managers in most industries are busier than ever, doing more with less time. Make the most of your time by partnering with an experienced staffing agency for meeting your talent requirements.
You are a project manager whose small but growing firm just landed a large client project—but two of your key employees have just left the company. You are a medical office manager in urgent need of an experienced back-office insurance biller to handle work overflow.
Staffing Agency vs. Temp Agency – What’s the Difference?
There are three main types of job placements that staffing agencies usually handle when helping to fill positions:
- Temporary: with temporary work status, the worker’s services are needed for a specific limited time frame, rather than indefinitely. The worker is an employee of the agency, not the company needing services. Pre-screening applicants, figuring taxes, payroll, insurance and other benefits as well as complying with employee laws are the concerns of the agency, not the client company.
- Temp-to-hire: a worker’s assignment is initially designated as temporary until the prospective employer has a chance to determine whether the candidate is a good fit for direct or long-term hire.
- Permanent or direct hire: a direct-hire, permanent position where the agency’s role is that of recruiter.
Many staffing agencies also specialize in finding passive candidates, which are workers not actively looking for a job, but who may be persuaded to change companies. Regardless of which type of work situation you have, Apex can help.
