Looking for your next top performer? Want to evaluate an employee before making a full-time hiring decision? Interested in outsourcing some of the paperwork associated with being an employer?
Staffing services come in a variety of forms to meet many different business needs, including the ones above. But as a Jackson staffing agency, Staffers knows that if you’re new to the world of staffing, it can be difficult to know where to begin. To help you in the process, below is a quick primer on the different types of staffing – and how your business can benefit from each.
Direct Hire Staffing
Direct hire staffing is a service in which a staffing agency helps you recruit and hire a full-time employee. With direct hire, the agency typically manages all the hiring details, so you and your core team can stay focused on other priorities in the business. In addition, thanks to the robust candidate networks agencies often have in place, you can gain faster access to higher-quality candidates.
In this type of arrangement, the staffing agency is responsible for:
- Evaluating the job requirements and developing a job description that best promotes the position and your company.
- Sourcing qualified candidates through job postings, advertising, and direct recruitment of both active and passive candidates.
- Conducting phone screens, interviews, and skills testing, as well as coordinating the hiring process.
- Conducting reference and background checks, as well as drug tests and any necessary skills testing.
- Helping to negotiate the job offer.
Temp-to-hire staffing is a little different from direct hire staffing in that an employee works for you for a trial period of time. At the end of the probationary period, you then decide whether or not you want to extend a full-time offer to the individual. The staffing agency provides pay and benefits until the candidate is hired full-time.
Why select temp-to-hire staffing? This arrangement offers you an opportunity to test out a candidate before hiring them on a permanent basis. As a result, you can make a more educated hiring decision and reduce the risk of an expensive hiring mistake.
With payroll services (also known as “payrolling”), you choose the worker, but the staffing agency arranges their pay and manages all the official paperwork involved with hiring. Outsourcing payroll can offer a variety of benefits to your company, including freeing staff to pursue more important value-added and revenue-generating tasks.
