For many businesses, filling open positions can be a hassle. This is particularly true for smaller companies that do not have a very large human resources department. However, fluctuations in staffing needs can make it necessary for you to hire someone as soon as possible. It is for this reason that more and more businesses are turning to staffing agencies to help them find temporary, or temp-to-hire, staff for their company. If you have not previously considered enlisting the help of temp services for your business’s staffing needs, here are just a few of the reasons to consider do so.
Saves You Time and Money
As was previously mentioned, hiring new employees can be a time-consuming endeavor, and as they say, time is money. With the help of a staffing agency, you will be able to fill vacancies in your company much quicker than if you had attempted to do so yourself, as these agencies specialize in finding the right candidate for specific positions. Additionally, staffing agencies often have a wider reach online, which allows them to pull from a broader, more experienced, pool of candidates when filling a position. In this way, a staffing agency can help to not only save you time and money when filling vacancies in your company, but also, they will likely be better suited to find the best candidate for the position that you need filled.
Hire Seasonal Employees
Temp services and staffing agencies are particularly useful for businesses who need to be able to quickly respond to fluctuations in their staffing needs. For these business owners, peak seasons can present a problem, as they will need to be able to quickly hire temporary staff, but they will also likely be too busy during this time to look for temporary help themselves. Temp services can be of great help during this time, as they will be able to quickly place you with employees while requiring little effort on your part. These temporary hires can then be easily let go once the rush has passed.
Allows You to Evaluate New Hires Without Committing
However, staffing agencies are not only good for temporary hires, but can also be a simpler, more flexible, way to hire new employees. By hiring employees on a temp-to-hire basis through a staffing agency, you will be able to evaluate potential candidates for openings in your company without making a long-term commitment. You will be able to evaluate new hires over a period of weeks, or months, and at the end of the designated trial period, you will have the freedom and flexibility to either take the temporary employee on on a permanent basis if you like them, or, you will be able to let them go without hassle were they not the right fit for your company.
You Won’t Have To Worry About Payroll
Hiring a staffing agency to take care of temporary, or temp-to-hire, staffing needs for you is all about reducing stress. Another way in which hiring a staffing agency can make life easier for you is that, during the time in which a new hire is considered a temp, all of their paperwork will be taken care of by the temp agency. This means that nuisances such as payroll and tax forms will not be your problem, but will be taken care of by the staffing firm, limiting what you have to take care of while your temporary employee is with you, or until you take them on permanently.
Temp services can provide businesses with a wide variety of benefits by making the hiring process as simple and stress free as possible for them. Contact us to learn more about the reasons why you should consider enlisting the help of a staffing agency when filling openings at your business.
