What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?With news of the economy slowly rebounding, many economists are wondering where people are being hired to get a better understanding of where the economy may be going. Surprisingly, what some are finding out is that many of the jobs that are out are in the temporary market. In fact, temporary staffing has gone up more than fifty percent in the four years since the Great Recession, with seventeen million people total employed as temporary workers, contract workers, freelancers or consultants. And it appears that this trend isn’t going away any time soon.

Many companies are not as well off as they were pre-recession. They need the manpower, but the ability to hire a full-time worker just isn’t there yet. They may not be able to afford the benefits that come with full-time employment; nor may they be so trusting of the economy given the potential of other bubbles bursting and political gridlock in Washington. For these reasons, companies have embraced temporary and contract work.

However, you might not think it but some workers might prefer this system as well. If you are in school, for example, you might only need a job in the short-term. Temporary staffing agencies can help find these students work on their respites.

They may be looking to move on whenever they feel necessary, and temporary/contract work can provide the freedom they need in their endeavors.

Whatever the reasons for your desire to hire temporary workers, you’re going to need the help of a temporary staffing agency to ensure that you get the right people for the job. Unfortunately, a job search for the right candidate could take several months, costing you time and money that could be best spend elsewhere.
